Developing marinas on the Cork coastline is a top priority for county manager Martin Riordan.
Speaking to the Evening Echo recently, Riordan outlined plans to exploit tourism for job creation, focusing on Cork Harbour and the county's 680 miles of coastline.
"We need to develop a honey pot around Cork Harbour," he said. "An in terms of marinas, there is scope for another two or three marinas aroind the coast."
Riordan pinpointed Youghal and Schull as two preferred locations.
"I think Fáilte Ireland shoud be giving funding to get one or two of these marinas started," he added, noting that Cork County Council was prepared to provide council-owned land for the projects.
"If we could get another three marinas in the next four or fives years it would make a big difference to tourism," he said.
4NI reports that tenders have already been invited for a hotel and berthing area in Youghal.
