#CruiseBerthOpposition – Some of the country's most exclusive yacht clubs in Dun Laoghaire Harbour are fighting to stop proposals for a new terminal designed to facilitate "super-sized" cruise liners.

Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company displayed plans to build a 390-metre long cruise berth for passenger ships as part of a non-statutory public consultation for two weeks over Easter.

It is one of three bodies involved in the Dun Laoghaire Cruise Stakeholder Group, which is promoting the proposed facility. The other supporters are Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown county council and Dun Laoghaire Business Improvement District (BID).

The combined group will submit a planning application to An Bord Pleanala, by the end of this month.

The Royal St George Yacht Club, a 177-year-old institution with its elegant Victorian clubhouse at the harbour , has warned the proposed cruise berth would be "of megalithic proportions", would have a negative impact on local amenities and "dissect" the Victorian-built landmark.
