Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ireland exports a lot of fresh and ready made food where travel time could be critical. I don't think Ireland is all that integrated into European JIT manufacturing processes. Costs would depend on how many competitors operate routes but there has to be some saving if Truck and driver don't accompany load. The new Cork Santander route has been a success, by all accounts, but it is actually a shorter sea route (1,000km) than Dublin Rotterdam (1,300km). Rosslare Le Havre, on the other hand, is only 750km.

Bloody England gets in the way. We need to chop off the lands end peninsula
