Public Notice from Dublin Port Company
The latest forecast is for continued easterly and south-easterly winds from Thursday 11th February through to Sunday 14th February. There are active Status Yellow Marine Gale Warning and Small Craft Warning coinciding spring tides and the persistence of easterly swells in Dublin Bay.
As a result, the Great South Wall will need to be closed from the following times and dates:
Thursday 11th February from 09.30hrs – 23.59hrs
Friday 12th February – 24 hour Closure
Saturday 13th February – 24 hour Closure
Sunday 14th February – 00.01hrs to 15.00hrs
The Great South Wall closure is due to tide height and dangerous winds on the exposed wall surface.
Delays to some shipping activity and pilotage services is likely, including possible delays at the port’s LOLO container terminals, i.e. where containers are loaded and unloaded by crane. Please contact the individual terminals direct to establish their status.
Dublin Port Company will continue to monitor the situation and provide relevant updates via our website www.dublinport.ie and social media channels.
