The Ferries Division within the Irish Continental Group has demonstrated exceptional performance. Revenues surged by 4.4% in the initial 10 months of the year. Notably, in the period leading up to November 18th, there was a remarkable 12.4% increase in car shipments and a 3.3% rise in Ro-Ro freight.

However, container freight faced challenges attributed to a deceleration in deep-sea volumes. Despite this setback, the overall performance of the Ferries Division underscores its resilience and success in a dynamic market.
