Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Council is to receive over €3 million in Brexit investment for infrastructure work to Dún Laoghaire Harbour, Ireland’s largest marine leisure harbour, writes Amy Rohu.

Senator Victor Boyhan a former director of Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company and a member of the Oireachtas Committee on the Marine has welcomed the funding stream which has come from a central allocation for over € 32.M for 13 Coastal Local Authorities across the country. He said: “It’s a great splash of cash which the Council will use for essential works to the harbour”.

Of the €3,092M funding approved to Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council for use in Dún Laoghaire Harbour €1,348M will be used for Bert Fenders and related infrastructure and €1,744M will be used for essential East Pier Revetment Repairs.

This is the largest ever funding announcement of its kind for local authority marine infrastructure for piers and harbours right around our coast.

This funding is intended to help to drive economic diversification and will complement other measures such as Community Led Local Development via the Fisheries Local Action Groups.
