Earlier today, as Afloat.ie reported here, breaking waves in north Dublin at Howth have caused damaged to a pierside shed where some historic yachts are stored.
Today's high tide at noon added to Howth's storm problems with the northeast gale little eased, and the waves continuously sweeping over the East Pier. While the actual damage timeline is still confused, it may well be that the worst of the destruction to the sheds at the end of the pier housing seven of the Howth 17s did not occur until around 1.30pm today, with reports of at least two boats seriously damaged
