Holyhead Ferry Terminal - 1982
Holyhead Ferry Terminal - 1982
Holyhead is the largest town in the county of Anglesey in the North Wales. It is also a major port adjacent to the Irish Sea serving Ireland.
The Port of Holyhead has a ferry port handling more than 2 million passengers each year. Ferries sail to Dublin with a limited once a day sailing to Dún Laoghaire in Ireland.
Originally planned for Sealink's Fishguard to Rosslare service, the St David was instead allocated to Holyhead as the second ship. She arrived at Holyhead on 5 August 1981, replacing the chartered Prinsessan Desiree in service five days later.
At the end of her first season the St David replaced the St Columba as the route's main ship, the newcomer being more economical to operate during the quieter winter months.
