The news comes in the latest update from Norman Kean of ICC Publications, who has done sterling work keeping up to date on the changes since the law banning green diesel for leisure boating came into force.
A local filling station will now bring a towable bowser to the south Connemara harbour for boats that need it, while in West Cork, boats visiting Baltimore — where white diesel is presently in cans — can avail of hose supply from July.
Before the coronavirus emergency closed down the country’s marinas and harbours for three months, Carlingford Marina had been the most recent to make moves to install a white diesel tank for pump supply.
However, for now pump supply remains concentrated to the East and South Coasts, at seven marinas between Malahide and Kinsale.
Kilrush is the only marina with white diesel fuel berths on the West Coast, though quayside supply is available at a number of points between Galway Bay and West Cork.
