Work continues apace for new boating facilities on Dublin Bay at the old Dun Laoghaire Baths site in Sandycove.

Over the next couple of months, the final elements of the pier construction will be installed, including caisson units (which look like large hollow bricks) along each side of the pier foundation.

As Afloat.ie has previously reported, the works are part of a redevelopment of the old baths that had been left in a state of dereliction by the council for over 20 years.

When finished the new pier will offer a much-needed point of access to Dublin Bay for small boats and canoes and sea swimmers.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
