Rock Armour Offloaded at Dun Laoghaire Baths

Rock armour has now been offloaded at the Dun Laoghaire Baths site (right in the above picture) where work on Dublin Bay's newest boating jetty is underway. 

As Afloat.ie reported last week, the massive granite boulders were moved onto the site by barge and more boulders are scheduled to arrive this week.

Once this delivery has been completed, the rock armour will be more precisely located to protect the new jetty (centre in the above picture) against erosion from the sea. 

As Afloat.ie has previously reported, the works are part of a redevelopment of the old baths (pictured left) that had been in a state of dereliction 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.
