Westport area councillors welcomed the news that breakwater type pontoons are to be installed at Rosmoney Pier. The pontoons will be installed off the northwest corner of the existing pier at Rosmoney and will be held in place by steel circular hollow section piles and accessed from the pier by means of an access walkway.
Councillor John O’Malley welcomed the news, stating that island inhabitants particularly have wanted this for some time. Councillors Margaret Adams, Austin Francis O’Malley, and Peter Flynn concurred.
Depending on when the foreshore licence is granted, work could be started later this year.
