The world's largest car ferry, the Ulysses, arrives in Dublin Port to begin service on the route to Holyhead. The 12-deck ferry cost £80 million and was built in Finland.

Tony Kelly, Irish Ferries, tells RTÉ News

To introduce and deliver the world's largest car ferry is a proud moment for us.

The Ulysses weighs 50,000 tonnes - 4,000 tonnes more than the Titanic.
