HC Deb 07 May 1913 vol 52 cc2053-4W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Congested Districts Board is now in a position to state what definite steps will be taken to provide a proper slip at Cooscroom, to mark the sunken rocks in the fairway of the Portmagee Channel, and to construct a slip at the Cahirciveen Quay?


The Congested Districts Board have already expended a considerable sum in constructing a pier at Cooscroom, and they are not prepared now to incur further expenditure in making a boat-slip at that place. The Board do not contemplate marking the sunken rocks in Portmagee Channel. The Board offered to make a contribution towards the cost of constructing a boat-slip at Cahirciveen Quay, and they are not prepared to do more than this.
