At Rosslare Harbour, a series of information boards highlighting all that is great about the south-east ferry port and more have been installed throughout the Co. Wexford village.

The seven lecterns, which focus on Rosslare Europort, shipping, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), Tuskar Lighthouse, Kilrane, Rosslare Harbour, and St Helens, provide visitors with carefully researched facts and photographs on the history of each area.

The official unveiling of the information boards saw Chairperson of the Village Development Team Alan Murphy welcome and thank Wexford County Council (WCC) for helping to deliver projects under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme.

Alan Murphy, in particular thanked District Manager for the Rosslare Municipal District (RMD) Nóirín Cummins and local councillor Ger Carthy for their efforts in ensuring this project was delivered.

Over €31,000 was raised to fund the new lecterns and others initiatives which will soon be undertaken by the Rosslare Harbour/ Kilrane Village (RHKV) Development Team.

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.
