Dun Laoghaire's Wild West Pier Has Them Foxed

#dlharbour – Locals like to think of Dun Laoghaire's West Pier as being like a bit of Ireland's Atlantic seaboard, rugged and untamed in contrast to the smooth expression of urban order which is the East Pier. This week, while researching the western half of the harbour for the Sailing on Saturday blog which will feature Dun Laoghaire developments in detail on January 25th, we found dramatic evidence that this is where the wild things are. A fox was strolling…
The south and west coasts endured another day of damage due to harsh weather and the east coast remained relatively unscathed. The high tides on Dublin Bay last night however showed just how vulnerable some of the capital's old harbours might be if the gales had been from the east rather than the west.

#DunLaoghaire - The Irish Times reports that a planning application has been lodged for the proposed 'urban beach' on Dun Laoghaire's waterfront.

The half-centenary event drew craft from throughout Ireland,…
#frostbites – The weather station on the east pier of Dun Laoghaire was recording wind strengths of 17 - 19 knots with gusts in the low thirties and although the committee boat went out, ultimately they abandoned racing on the water with a "N over A".
Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company (DLHC) is commencing a process of market research with potential developers in relation to the development of a 3.24 hectare site on the harbour at St Michael's Pier.In November, the Harbour Company placed a notice in EU-Tenders indicating an intention to seek a developer for a mixed-use scheme at the current ferry terminal site. Developers interested in being considered for the market research have until this evening (02.12.13) to submit their interest.After the deadline, the market…
