After a decade of dedicated service, Alan Corr, the marina manager of Greystones Harbour Marina in County Wicklow, retired at the end of February.

Alan has been a vital part of the marina's success story since January 2014, bringing his wealth of knowledge and expertise in the marine industry to the management of the east coast facility.

"Alan''s contribution to the marina has been invaluable, and his willingness to go above and beyond to assist berth holders, customers, and businesses has been widely appreciated," James Kirwan, Group Manager of BJ Marine and Greystones Harbour Marina" told Afloat.

"His colleagues, including Bernard, John, Marie, and Cian, consider themselves fortunate to have worked alongside him and will always remember his contributions fondly, Kirwan said.

"While Alan will be missed, he is looking forward to spending more time with his wife, daughters, and grandchild. Additionally, he plans on catching up on his fishing, a passion he has had for years," Kirwan added.

As Alan moves on to the next phase of his life, Greystones Harbour Marina welcomes Scott Matthews as their new marina manager. Team
