17th July 2018
Mis-use of Electrical Power in Waterways Ireland Harbours

Waterways Ireland says it has been experiencing tampering with power bollards, where the card reader/wiring/circuit has been interfered with to enable access to free power.

Waterways Ireland is advising masters and owners of vessels that:-

  1. This practice is illegal.
  2. This practice is highly dangerous.
  3. This practice damages the equipment and reduces the facilities available to other boaters.

Waterways Ireland says it will take steps to prosecute this criminal activity where witnessed. If boat users witness the mis-use of power bollards please report the locations and details of the mis-use to [email protected]
