The final splice on IRIS was done on August 8th and burial of the joint was finished on August 10th. The cable ship left the location (yellow box) from the west coast of Ireland to port Call Killybegs in Ireland and operation IRIS was completed. The IRIS cable did fro August 8th have end to end live test signal, from the cable station in Thorlakshofn, Iceland, to the cable station in Galway. This is a major achievement and only a day or two deviation from the intial plan.
