Youghal in East Cork has been appointed its first full-time Harbour Master.
Cork County Council advertised for the ‘full time and pensionable’ post last December, as previously reported on Afloat.ie.
The new Harbour Master, who is expected take up their role next month, will also have responsibility for the coastline to nearby Ballycotton.
The appointment comes on the heels of new council bye-laws that give Harbour Masters and proposed ‘harbour constables’ greater authority to deal with mooring fees, abandoned vessels and criminal activity.
Youghal has been the focus of a spate of outboard engine thefts in recent weeks.
The East Cork Journal has more on the story HERE.

#dingle – A new harbour master has been appointed to Dingle Fishery Harbour Centre in County Kerry, the most westerly harbour in Europe.
Captain Nigel Collins has taken up the position having previously been Assistant Inspector of Navigation with Waterways Ireland.
The position in the port has been vacant since earlier this year, when Lieutenant Commander Brian Farrell retired from duty.
The Kerry harbour has a marina and is a popular choice with those cruising the south west coast.
#NEWS UPDATE - The body of the last missing crewmember of the stricken Tit Bonhomme was recovered in Glandore Bay in West Cork on Friday, The Irish Times reports.
The remains of 23-year-old Egyptian national Saied Ali Edlin were discovered floating on the surface to the west of the bay off Long Point, almost a mile from the wreck site and close to a month after the tragedy occurred.
It also comes just two days after the body of skipper Michael Hayes was found close to the mouth of the harbour, as previously reported on Afloat.ie.
The fishing vessel Tit Bonhomme ran aground in rough seas near Adam's Rock, at the mouth of Glandore Harbour, on Sunday 15 January.
Five of the six-person crew - Eldin, Hayes, Attea Shaban (26), Kevin Kershaw (21) and Wael Mohammed (35) - lost their lives when the boat went down.
Only 43-year-old Abdul Mohammed, the brother of Wael Mohammed, survived the sinking after he was able to reach the shore.
"Some of those lost were Egyptian, some were Irish but if you fish the sea, you’re all part of the same family," commented harbour master John Minihane. "We’re all the same, we’re one fishing family and we brought them home.”
