Clare County Council says it is satisfied with the outcome of a court case involving two ferry operators and Doolin Pier.
The local authority had initiated High Court injunction proceedings against Bill O’Brien, trading as O’Brien Line Doolin Ferry, and Liscannor Ferry Company Ltd, trading as Doolin2Aran Ferries and Cliffs of Moher Cruises in relation to matters at Doolin Pier.
The case, which is understood to involve temporary buildings located at Doolin Pier, was due to be heard in the High Court today, July 16. However, after formal undertakings were given by the parties involved, the case was adjourned by consent with liberty to re-enter the High Court proceedings if necessary.
Responding to a questions from The Clare People, a council spokesperson said the local authority looks forward to implementing major plans for Doolin including the €6m pier project currently underway and the design of a new visitor services building at the pier.
“The major new coastguard building is now nearing completion and the combined impact of all projects will be a state-of-the-art tourist designation which is of strategic importance and a key site on the Wild Atlantic Way,” said a spokesperson.
Clare County Council has commenced the preparatory design for a new visitor services building which will provide for all visitor comforts and accommodate ferry operator services.
