Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It would be possible to have Irish drivers take over the trucks in Ireland. Then there would be no need to pay truckers for the transit time at sea or to pay loading fees for cranes to move containers from truck to boat and then back again at Dublin.

BTW, does Ireland have adequate return cargo for these vessels? It would seem desirable to favor transport of goods to the EU over transport to England, especially where the transport to England is by English vessels. The exception would be if England paid more than the EU would pay.
