2001: Paul Quay Marina, Wexford


The marina at Paul Quay was part of a major re-development of Wexford's sea front. The old wooden quays had originally been constructed by the Fishguard/Rosslare Railways and Harbour Company Ltd. under the Railway Act of 1871.The removal of the wooden wharf provided a major opportunity to improve and enhance the sea front as an amenity space in addition to providing facilities for the harbour's expanding mussel boat industry. The resulting development was the winner of an Irish Planning Institute Urban Design Award in 2002. The civil engineering work on the marina was carried out by Mulcairs/Roadbridge, including footpaths, drainage and public lighting. Bennett Tarmacadam was appointed by Wexford Borough Council to complete the surfacing works. This required 60mm of 20mm dense base course and 40mm of 10mm dense wearing course. The project was completed in May 2001. Please note that the above photos were taken in November 2003, over two years after the original work.
