I believe this article would be better split into two:
-- "Rosslare Europort", dealing with the commercial port of that name [categories: Transport in Ireland, Ports]; and
-- "Rosslare Harbour" (Calafort Ros Láir), dealing with the community of that name which the harbour gave rise to at (original name) Ballygeary [categories: Towns in Wexford, Towns in the RoI].
The fact that the owners of the harbour decided to rename it Rosslare Europort a few years back does not mean that the community of Rosslare Harbour has changed its name. I think the distinction is a useful one, e.g. "I live in Rosslare Harbour and work at the Europort".
Other opinions? -- Picapica 11:43, 12 Feb 2005 (UTC)
- Seems reasonable.
- Is the town definitely called "Rosslare Harbour" and not "Rosslare"? zoney ♣ talk 13:21, 12 Feb 2005 (UTC)
"Rosslare" (alone) refers to the village of Rosslare (a.k.a. Rosslare Strand), which is 8.5 km by road from Rosslare Harbour. There is already a separate article about the village. I propose to split the Rosslare Europort article tomorrow (there seem to be ongoing Wikiproblems at the moment!) -- Picapica 17:06, 12 Feb 2005 (UTC)
