#dublinport - At Dublin Port freight requiring physical checks after Brexit will, writes The Irish Times, be inspected in a warehouse formerly owned by businessman Harry Crosbie following an agreement signed by the State.
As part of contingency planning for the United Kingdom crashing out of the European Union without a deal next month, Dublin Port Company has signed a licensing agreement with the Office of Public Works to hand over use of a port-owned 13,000m warehouse on a five-acre site at the northeastern part of the port for Brexit-related checks.
The departure of the UK, the State’s closest trading partner, from the EU will lead to a huge increase in the number of UK imports requiring customs, health and safety clearance on their arrival into the port.
Eamonn O’Reilly, the port’s chief executive, confirmed it had licensed the property on Tolka Quay Road to the State, and that the OPW was fitting out the former Crosbie warehouse property and another seven-acre inspection area to be ready for Brexit-related checks after the UK’s departure on March 29th.

#Property - New Ross Boat Yard in Co Wexford is now on the market at a price point of €4 million.
With 230 metres of frontage on the River Barrow and easy access to the Nore and Suir (and by extension the South East Coast), the 1.62-hectare property also comes with a sizeable dry dock, one of only three in the Republic that can handle large commercial boats.
Additionally on the site is a 50-tonne marine travel lift and winter storage space or as many as 150 vessels, thanks to signifiant refurbishment over the last decade by its present owner.
With an annual turnover of €840,000, and planning permission in place to adapt the dry dock for year-round service, the boat yard is sure to be an attractive prospect.
According to Galway Bay FM, harbour CEO Eamon Bradshaw said lack of space in the inner docks was the reason for rejecting the proposal by a local property management firm in an effort to alleviate the accommodation crisis facing NUI Galway students.
Last month Winters Property said it was in talks to bring to the city two purpose-build apartment barges, with a capacity of more than 400 between them.
The company’s managing director Enda McGuane also said he was discussing the possibility of mooring at the private Mud Dock owned by Capt Sam Field-Corbett, the champion of waterside accommodation behind the Naomh Eanna restoration.
#Galway - A property management firm in Galway believes a solution to the city’s rental crisis for students could be found in the form of large-scale floating accommodation, according to The Irish Times.
Winters Property says it could have two such purpose-built apartment barges, with capacity for more than 400 NUI Galway students between them, in Galway Docks within weeks.
The barges are developed by Liverpool-based Bibby Maritime for use in the oil and gas sector and corporate events, and the company currently has two such vessels available.
But planning permission is another matter, with berthing space at a premium in the city and priority given to commercial traffic.
Winters Property’s managing director Enda McGuane says he is in discussions with Capt Sam Field-Corbett, waterside accommodation advocate behind the Naomh Eanna restoration, about the feasibility of using his privately owned Mud Dock as a mooring location.
