HC Deb 13 May 1897 vol 49 c387
MR. J. J. CLANCY (Dublin Co. N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the pier at Loughshinny, county of Dublin, has now for several years been left but half built; and whether any steps are to be taken, and if so, when, to complete that structure, an excellent foundation for the unfinished part of which already actually exists?


Prior to 1886 there existed at Loughshinny, County Dublin, only the ruins of a very ancient pier about 400 feet long. In that year the Fishery, Piers and Harbours Commissioners made a grant of the then available balance of the Sea Fishery Fund, namely, £1,899, together with a local contribution of £276 for the construction of a pier 120 feet long and of a boatslip and platform. These works were completed, and handed over to the Grand Jury of the County of Dublin in 1888. No proposal is before the Board of Works for increasing the length of the pier, nor have they any funds available for such a purpose.
