Work has started this week to build the clubhouses for the 5 clubs. The Sea Scouts, Rowers, Sailors, Divers and Anglers will receive free clubhouses from the developer, Sisk, with completion expected at the end of this year (photo). The temporary boat compounds are now being moved to allow laying underground pipes and a permanent surface prior to the boats moving back in mid summer.
‘it is great to see progress again and this will be a boost to marine and youth activity in the town. No other town in Ireland has given such great facilities to marine organisations’ said Cllr Derek Mitchell.
‘The Harbour Project also won the best Civil Engineering project at the Local Government Awards having been nominated by Cllr Grainne McLoughlin’.
