City welcomes cruise

THE first cruise ship of 2012 has docked at Dun Laoghaire Harbour this week, with a further three expected throughout the summer.

The MV Quest was berthed at the Carlisle Pier for the day while her passengers explored the region, before returning to Dun Laoghaire for a welcome reception in the town hall.

A further 10 cruises are scheduled for next year, which should provide a welcome boost to the area.
