HistoryEdit

The company was founded in 1837 by Neal Kelly.

In 1871 the company amalgamated with the Newry Steam Packet Company to form the Dundalk and Newry Steam Packet Company. This survived until 1926 when it was taken over by the British and Irish Steamship Company.

Services from Liverpool to Dundalk and Newry ceased in 1968.
