A New Ferryboat - Youghal Notes

It is stated on good authority that the Waterford Co. Council have placed a contract for a new ferry boat for the Blackwater at Villierstown, with the Messrs Aherne, boat builders, Strand Street, Youghal.  This is certainly another addition to the many instances of go-aheadedness of the Waterford Co. Council as compared to our own Cork Council.

The Placing of the contract with Messrs Aherne is a proof of the name they have gained for turning out their work.  Last year they built a splendid fishing boat for a returned Irish-American, who was highly satisfied with the craft.
