The replica famine ship which was undergoing repairs when previously reported on Afloat.ie is among a list of assets that will be handed over from the Dublin Docklands Development Authority (DDDA) to the council when it eventually winds down.
Currently, the ship costs €240,000-a-year to run but ticket sales do not cover all expenses.
The ship is among some key features in the Docklands which will be transferred to the council.
It is also planned to give a €3m cash sum to the council and extra funds to carry improvements on facilities that are not up to scratch.
However, when asked last night if the Jeanie Johnston's repairs (see photo from another report) would be included in this budgeted improvement, the DDDA did not respond.
