Revenues were 3.4% up at �?¬264.7m and earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation rose by 7.4% to �?¬49.2m. Chairman John B McGuckian said: "''2013 was a successful year for the Group with a solid financial and operational performance in a competitive passenger and freight market place. The improving economic outlook in Ireland has encouraged us in our recently announced investment in the charter of an additional vessel, the Epsilon, which has been trading since mid December. RoRo freight volumes are up 18% year on year, to date, despite adverse weather conditions which have led to cancelled sailings." Story provided by
