The Dun-Laoghaire stand off March 1982
The M. V. Munster blocks Sealinks St. David from docking in Dun-Laoghaire 1982.
This was as a result of a  dispute by Sealink port workers in Holyhead, 
who fearing they might lost their jobs, prevented the B+I from setting up a new service from Dublin to Holyhead by blockading Holyhead port . It was all resolved a couple of weeks later.
