Corrie Cast Drops in on Irish Ferries ‘Soap Tour’

Corrie Cast Drops in on Irish Ferries ‘Soap Tour’

Coronation Street cast members Katie McGlynn (aka Sinead Tinker), Bruno Langley (Todd Grimshaw), Sair Khan (Alya Nazir) and Mikey North (Gary Windass) got the Club Class treatment from Irish Ferries chef Ronnie Crosbie when they visited the cruise ferry Ulysses recently to give their support to the ‘Soaps Tour’ being organised by the ferry company in partnership with Celtic Horizon Tours.

Attracting over 3,000 passengers since its inception last April, the tour brings fans on a guided visit to the sets used in Coronation Street and Emmerdale productions.

Seen as an ideal birthday, anniversary or get-away gift for Corrie fans and lovers of the English countryside, the €239 package includes return coach pick-up and ferry crossing, coupled with two nights bed and breakfast at a 3-star Manchester hotel. The tour continues until October next.
