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

Procurement of the services referred to by the Deputy is an operational matter for the various harbour users in Killybegs and the services in question are procured directly by them from the relevant service providers.
