Cork County Council is delighted to announce that works are almost complete on the construction of the 25- metre (double sided) floating pontoon, for Youghal, to be located at Nealons Quay. This announcement follows funding applications of 2015 for moorings and pontoon facilities to the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, which to-date had been part successful, with the installation of 6 visitor moorings back in 2016. In July of this year, however, the Department announced substantial funding for the Pontoon. Cork County Council was “shovel ready” for the project at that stage and committed remainder of the required funding.
“The installation of this pontoon will be a fantastic asset to Youghal and its maritime activities, particularly to boat owners who may now come ashore on foot without the requirement of a tender /dingy.” said Helen Mulcahy of East Cork Municipal District. “Our boating fraternity may now enjoy Youghal for it’s land and sea facilities with a smooth transition between both via Youghal’s new pontoon”
