Rush Harbour Upgrade
COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL
FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL
BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING
[Services A – Operational Matters]
Thursday, 10th November, 2016
ITEM NO. 58
Question: Councillor B. Dennehy
"To ask the Chief Executive for an update on the works programme planned to
repoint the cobble stones on Rush Harbour?"
All works to Harbours are, by nature, very specialised, particularly so when the
Harbour is a Protected Structure as is the case in Rush. An initial exploratory
attempt at removing cobbles and flipping them over proved not to be workable
as the other face was not sufficiently uniform. Alternative methodologies are
being researched in conjunction with the Conservation Officer and a further
report will be brought to the Committee when a solution has been found.
