Pandoro was established by P&O in 1975 to operate the company’s Irish Sea RORO routes. Pandoro was an acronym for P and O Roro. In 1998 P&O Irish Sea was formed through the merger of the Cairnryan-based services of P&O European Ferries (Felixstowe) Ltd and Pandoro Ltd (who operated routes between England, Scotland and France to Ireland). In 2010, P&O Irish Sea was merged into the operations of P&O Ferries.
