Question:

808. Deputy Pádraig Mac Lochlainn asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine the reason he has not added Dunmore East to the list of designated piers and harbours in the State that can facilitate the landing of fishing vessels registered in Northern Ireland considering the presence of the Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority officials at the harbour.

Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 807 and 808 together.

I am actively considering in consultation with the Sea Fisheries Protection Agency, the designation of Dunmore East for direct landings by fishing vessels from Third Countries and the designation of Malin Head for landings of Northern Ireland vessels.

I am also actively considering an extension to the existing opening hours of Rathmullen, Greencastle and Burtonport.

Question No. 808 answered with Question No. 807.
