O'Sullivan takes over in Fenit

11th November 2009
O'Sullivan takes over in Fenit

Brian O'Sullivan of O'Sullivan's Marine is the new chairman of Tralee and Fenit Harbour Commissioners in County Kerry. The Chamber of Commerce candidate takes over the role amid plans to double the marina there from 100 to 200 berths. This year the port played host to the Irish Cruiser Championships and in 2010 it is a stop-over in the Round Ireland RIB race. O'Sullivan is a former Chairman of the Irish Marine Federation so is ideally placed to develop marine leisure interests in Europe's most westerly port.

Fenit harbour is a mixed function sea port, where fishing, commercial shipping, and a 136 berth marina are the main forms of business. It is the most westerly commercial port in Europe. In 1880, Fenit harbour was built and the Harbour Board took on the name "Tralee and Fenit Pier and Harbour Board". The Marina was built in 1997 and has 130 berths (15 visitors berths) for boats from 6 metres to 25 metres, with access at all stages of the tide.
