A marina pontoon and several small craft berthed at Dingle Harbour in County Kerry were damaged on Saturday, November 26th, by a trawler manoeuvring in the harbour.

Local reports say the visiting trawler was reversing at the time of the incident, as captured in this video below by YouTuber Tommy B. 

Several small motorboats, RIBs, and the southern section of the marina infrastructure were capsized or damaged in the collision with the trawler. 

Local sources say no one was hurt in the incident, and plans to recover the damaged boats are underway.

100-berth Dingle Marina is situated on the South West Coast of Ireland on the northern shore of Dingle Bay.
