My Department owns, operates and maintains the six designated State-owned Fishery Harbour Centres, located at Castletownbere, Dingle, Dunmore East, Howth, Killybegs and Ros An Mhíl, under statute.

My Department gained vacant possession of the property referred to by the Deputy after protracted legal proceedings, in early 2019. Since then, the property has undergone remedial works in order to prepare the building for tender. These works are scheduled to be completed in early 2022, following which the property will be offered for occupation by means of a competitive public tender process.

The tender will be published in local press, in the office of the Harbour Master at Howth Fishery Harbour Centre and online at www.gov.ie/en/collection/351d2-tenders-and-notices/.
