Given the issues that ATW had in getting the basic schedules up and running, I imagine that selling Sail/Rail beyond Rosslare in Ireland is somewhat down the pecking order but I'd imagine that it should be sorted out in due course.

That I imagine requires the commercial departments of ATW, IE and Stena to get together.

The GB National Rail website (and by default the individual train operating companies' sites) does at least now have the correct timetable for the Rosslare line loaded. The stations just need to have the Sail/Rail option via Fishguard & Rosslare added.
