#CruiseLiners - Belfast Harbour has submitted a planning application for a new cruise liner berth at Belfast Lough, as the Belfast Telegraph reports.

Belfast city councillors are this week expected to discuss the proposals for a £15 million (€16.5 million) terminal to handle growing cruise visitor numbers.

It’s the latest in a number of cruise berth plans around the island of Ireland, following similar proposals for Cobh on Cork Harbour and a revival of Dun Laoghaire’s large-scale liner ambitions.
