This previously proposed project by Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) was considered in the wider context of the provision of existing professional sea survival training facilities within the State and the cost, both construction and operational, of such an additional facility. The existing professional sea survival training facilities based at the National Maritime College of Ireland, Ringaskiddy, Co Cork, are unique in Ireland and designed both for fundamental safety training and specialised survival training, to increase survival ability in emergency situations. Those purpose built facilities are available for the provision of all necessary and required training for fishermen.
At the present time, there is no provision or plans to proceed with the project proposed in Greencastle.
