As previously reported the Port of Waterford announced an operating profit of €1.1 million for 2021, up from €700,000 on the year.

Turnover was €7.7m and shareholder's funds ended the year at €34m.

Bulk throughput in 2021 came in at 1.7 million tonnes, an 11% increase on 2020, while containers handled remained broadly in line with 2020.

The port said that activity for the first half of 2022 demonstrates that the business is again showing positive momentum in 2022 with bulk handling ahead of 2021 by over 12% at the half year and laden container throughput up 5% on last year.

Frank Ronan, Chief Executive, said the port performed well in 2021 despite the many challenges faced in that year.

RTE News also reports on the welcome return of the cruiseship sector to the south-east region, where Afloat adds a further nine callers are scheduled this season.
