The National Yacht Club has urged sailors to act urgently to help save Dun Laoghaire Harbour, in the face of a proposal for a 435m cruise ship berth. The club says in an appeal on its website:
"Now is your opportunity to lodge your submission on the Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company application to An Bord Pleanála for a €21m Large Cruise Ship Berth in the middle of the harbour. This cruise ship berth will be 435m in length... permanently dividing the harbour’s sailing area in two and forming a significant barrier to sailing in the harbour."
A picture gallery at the end of the article includes extensive illustrations showing the true scale of the berth and of the ships it would accommodate.
