Hope for Ireland's only cable car and transport links to island of Dursey.

Ireland's only cable car service has been going on a wing and a prayer since 1969.

But islanders were faced with being cut off after it was announced it was to close for repairs.

At the last minute the Government said a replacement ferry service will now be put in place for Dursey Island in West Cork, a relief for people and animals alike.

Sky News' Stephen Murphy as the story.
