The restored former Port of Cork passenger tender CILL AIRNE arrived at Dublin Port, North Wall Quay in spring 2007 after being restored from a somewhat rundown condition after a later life as a training vessel. She was acquired by the Irish Ship and Barge Fabrication Company and extensively refitted at Cork Dockyard in 2006. Her apparent "Mersey Ferry" lines often result in visiting Merseysiders mistakenly identifying her as a former Mersey Ferry! CILL AIRNE was built in Ireland by the Liffey Dockyard Ltd in 1962, her marine architects being Graham and Woolnough of Liverpool who were also responsible for designing the current Mersey Ferry vessels and as well as CILL AIRNE's sister ship BLARNA of 1961. Hence the design similarities.
The ship now trades as a bar and restaurant on North Wall Quay and is berthed opposite the former North Wall Railway Station opened to serve the London and North Western Railway Steamer service which departed from this location.
