    Default Three People Injured loading ferry onto cargo ship

    Three people were injured when a passenger ferry being loaded onto a cargo ship at Galway Docks fell from its slings into the water.

    Last week a cargo ship waiting to collect the ferries dragged its anchor and ran aground at Ros A Mhíl.

    No different ship Adventurer. The Pantanal is still in Galway bay with a tug standing by. Heard she has a lot of damage.

    Only saw your post in the commercial shipping forum after I'd posted here DPMC. Any word on where the Pantanal is going for repair?

    Another attempt to lift the ferries has been suspended.
