The east Cork port of Youghal will soon have its own Harbour Master following the recent advertisement posted by Cork County Council on its website.
The local authority is seeking a 'full-time and pensionable' Harbour Master for the port that has recently had visitor moorings and pontoons installed at its quay.
The funding announcement of €112,500 for the development of a pontoon and gangway in Youghal was made last April and news of the proposal broke on Afloat.ie last March here.
Eight visitor buoys were put in place in Youghal harbour and these have been very successful in attracting marine leisure tourism to the town. It is hoped the addition of the pontoon will build on the success of these buoys andenhance Youghal’s marine tourism offering and lead to an increase in visitors.
