Carlingford Lough Ferries were left red-faced earlier today then the on line poll to choose the new name for the new ferry ended in a dead heat with the joint winners each receiving 19,943 votes.

The owners of the new ferry told Newry Spud:

“Following the popular on line poll in England to name the new polar research vessel, we thought we would tap into the same public mood, however the public have spoken and like Brexit, the have left us with a difficult decision as to the name we use going forward’.

We can reveal the results of the on line poll were as follows:-

The Marine-MILF Yoke 19,943

The Cobbles GILFS Love IT 19,433

HMS Conor Murphy 14,568

Pride of Greencastle 4,567

The Charlie Casey Gin Palace 568

The Directors of Carlingford Lough Ferries are currently taking legal advice given the sensitivities of this only line poll.
