The Irish Sea basin forms a distinct network of histories, economies, and identities. Discover five Celtic port towns in Wales and Ireland that are connected and intertwined by the ferry routes that serve them: Holyhead, Fishguard, Pembroke Dock, Rosslare Harbour and Dublin Port. To get to know the landscape and the history, we hear from the people in the know. We meet up with several local characters and hear of their passion for the heritage and how their love for the place they call home is shaping the future.
