Ó Cuív sanctions €60,602 for safety works on Inis Meáin

12th October 2009

Éamon Ó Cuív TD, Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, has announced that he has sanctioned a grant of €60,602 to carry out safety works on Cé an Chalaidh Mhóir, Inis Meáin, Co. Galway. 

The works include the installation of fenders, lighting, stairs and a railing along the edge of the pier.
 
“I am delighted to sanction this grant to enhance the safety of this pier for both islanders and visitors alike,” the Minister said.

Cé an Chalaidh Mhóir, was officially opened by Minister Ó Cuív on November 3rd 2008. The works consisted of the dredging of a new berthing pool, the construction of a new pier, on-shore and off-shore break water, access road and parking facilities and the development of the harbour itself. The cost of the development came to almost €14m. The construction company, SIAC, won the Irish Concrete Society’s 2008 Infrastructural and Overall Award for Excellence for the sheltered harbour project.

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.
