MAID OF THE ISLES refitting on the slipway at Baltimore, County Cork - October 25, 2004.
It is a few years since MAID OF THE ISLES last appeared on Irish Sea Shipping. Back then this compact modern passenger ferry was operating for West Cork Coastal Cruises out of Baltimore providing a seasonal service to Schull and Cape Clear Island. She appeared to leave the service of West Cork Coastal Cruises being replaced by the much older former Marine Transport Services INGOT.
MAID OF THE ISLES is now working for the oil company Conoco-Philips at the Whiddy Island Oil Terminal in Bantry Bay
