A number of enquiries have been received regarding the use of the crane on the ferry pier during the bad weather conditions of recent weeks, which has caused landing difficulties for small vessels at the ferry pier.
To date, 15 individuals have each paid a once off contribution of €100 towards the crane on pier and have use of it free of charge.
Anyone else wishing to make a contribution of €100 for the use of the crane is welcome to do so.
The cost per lift for those wishing to use the crane but who do not wish to pay the one-off fee will be €35.00. All payments received will be payable to Comharchumann Árainn Mhór & will be used to help offset the costs incurred by Comharchumann Arainnmhor. To arrange use of the crane, contact Comharchumann Árainn Mhór.
