Hi Justin

Managed to get this one on my first business trip to Ireland. Many others followed later but I never managed to get another ferry as most of my time was spent around Cork and the South West. I do have a colour pic of her which I must scan at some time

A fine view of the Hibernia on the Departure Berth, loading for Holyhead in her penultimate year. The buildings on the pier were demolished last year having been erected in 1953 with a life span of 25 years.
