A consignment of huge granite boulders has arrived into Dun Laoghaire by barge to be used as rock armour to protect Dun Laoghaire's new jetty from erosion.

The new Scotsman's Bay quay, as Afloat.ie previously reported, which has taken shape this winter, is Dublin's newest quay for swimming and fishing. It is also intended to be an embarkation point for small boats and canoes.

The rock armour to surround the new jetty can only be positioned at sea at certain stages of the tide, a job that is expected to take a fortnight to complete, weather permitting.
