Irish Ferres' ISLE OF INISHMORE seen departing from Milford Have on the 14:45 sailing to Rosslare on Wednesday August 07, 2013. Photographed from Brunel Quay, Neyland, site of the former Great Western Railway Irish Packet Terminal which closed on the opening of Fishguard Harbour in 1906. Neyland continued to operate as a GWR and later British Railway station port until closure following the Beeching Review in the early 1960s. Pembroke Dock had begun life as a Royal Navy Dockyard of which much of the buildings and structures remain. Following closure by the Royal Navy in 1926, Pembroke Dock became the major Royal Airforce Coastal Command base for its fleet of Sunderland Flying Boats in the 1930s and remaining operational until the late 1950s. The passenger ro/ro terminal at Pembroke Dock opened in 1979 to serve the then new B&I Line service to Cork.
