MARINE NOTICE No 06 of 2018

REMOVAL OF VESSELS FROM BARROW NAVIGATION
Canal Act 1986 (Bye-Laws) 1988

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and owners of vessels that:
a. Non permitted vessels, Article 6(8)
b. Non attended and apparently abandoned vessels, Article 6(8)
c. Doubled moored and causing obstruction (sunk), Article 27 (3)
d. Vessels deemed to be/likely to cause a hazard to navigation, Article 33(3),
will be moved from their current locations at Graiguemanagh and St. Mulins on the Barrow Navigation and may be removed from canal property within two weeks of this notice. Removed vessels may then be subsequently disposed of in accordance with Article 34(2).

Classes of vessels mentioned above will be stickered and then moved/removed from navigation in order to clear berths for both visiting and cruising vessels in key areas.

Tracing owners of vessels seems to be like looking for a live penguin on the towpath! Do you keep records of owners who have previously held permits? Where is the best place to ask for this information if someone is trying to trace an owner of an apparently uncared for vessel,with a view to finding out if it may be for sale.
Thanks

Great question Cliff.

There are abandoned and sunken boats in Garrykennedy (Tipperary County Council) hbr that at the very least could have fittings removed.

I know that WI are not (who is?) managing this boating graveyard...

Tipperary Co Co is responsible for the boat graveyard in Garrykennedy, for the derelict and dangerous jetty in Kilgarvan, and the boat graveyard in Terryglass. (They are currently smartening up the area in Terryglass so it will be a posh graveyard.) In spite of representations Tipp Co Co seem to have no interest in these facilities or managing them to everyone's best advantage.

Thanks.

The "logical" solution would be for Tipp Co Co to hand their bits of harbour over to WI.

Is "what we have we hold" the only reason why this isn't done?
