#CruiseCobh – A feasibility study into building a new €10m deepwater quay in Cobh has been confirmed by the Pork of Cork Company, so to enable accommodating for increasingly bigger cruise liners, reports the Irish Examiner.

The port authority plans to significantly increase the number of cruise liner visits to Cork in the next five years and wants to concentrate all berthing in Cobh, rather than have some liners docked in Ringaskiddy.

Port of Cork commercial manager Captain Michael McCarthy said the newer cruise vessels coming off the production line were 'Quantum' Class and held nearly double the number of passengers of conventional liners.

In the interim, he said that plans are being drawn up to improve the current cruise line berth in Cobh to cater for the bigger vessels. For more on this story, the newspaper has a report HERE.
