29th September 2015

Moorings in front of the National Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire will be removed next season because of repair works being carried out on the East Pier's Number One berth. 

According to an Afloat.ie source, Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company has told the club that a barge will 'operate from the south end of No. 2 berth (Carlisle Pier) and the East Pier and its track being through the existing moorings'.

The NYC has several mooring trots in this location and is used for a dozen or so small boats, RIBs and Ruffian 23 keelboats.

It is understood the moorings will be removed from June 2016 until sometime in 2017.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
