There has been a new twist in the Foyle ferry saga with councillors across the water voting not to fund the service.

Donegal County Council WILL fund Foyle ferry despite ‘surprising’ snub from Causeway Council

The Causeway Council has decided not to subsidise the cross-border service after councillors across the water voted against a funding motion on a score of 20 to 15.

Sinn Fein, SDLP and a number of independent councillors voted in favour but Unionist members of the DUP, UUP and TUV blocked it.
