Financial accounts of Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company must be published and presented to the Oireachtas without delay, a former director of the company has said.
As The Irish Times reports, Independent Senator Victor Boyhan (see call for ferry return) who was a company director of the Dublin Bay harbour for 10 years, said the final 2017 accounts for the defunct company should have been published within six months of its dissolution.
The company was dissolved and control of the harbour was transferred to Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council last October,leaving the council with liabilities of almost €40 million as previously reported on Afloat..
Mr Boyhan has warned Minister for Local Government Eoghan Murphy that he and the Government could find themselves open to legal action if they saddle the local authority with this debt.

Afloat.ie adds it is just over five years ago since Stena Line's final ferry sailing on the seasonal-only service took place in September 2014 (see special News feature: Farewell to Stena's HSS, Ships Monthly, June 2015)
It was not until February of the following year that the operator finally confirmed the end of the historic Dun Laoghaire-Holyhead route by consolidating out of Dublin Port with an existing year-round service to the same north Welsh port.
