Repair Work Shows Extent of Storm Damage to Dun Laoghaire's East Pier

9th December 2018
Repair Work Shows Extent of Storm Damage to Dun Laoghaire's East Pier Photo:

Repairs are underway to the East Pier that was damaged in March's Storm Emma. The extent of the damage is visible from this landward photograph that reveals a breach in the harbour wall close to the bandstand area.

There was 'substantial damage' to Dun Laoghaire's East Pier following Storm Emma. 

Dublin harbours bore the brunt of the easterly storm when high seas caused flooding and infrastructural damage with the damage to the country's largest man made harbour revealed in these pictures here.

The bad news for the harbour, following its bicentenary year, came as Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council recommended the dissolution of Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company and the transfer of its assets to the local authority that has since been completed.
