01 Dec An Daingean Fishery Harbour Centre
Located in Co. Kerry on Ireland’s southwest coast, Dingle Harbour is set into the Dingle Peninsula on the northwest side of the extensive Dingle Bay. The well sheltered natural harbour has an inner harbour on its northern shore that hosts a fishing port, a marina, and a shallow draft anchoring area adjacent to the provincial market town.
In 2017 the harbor authority decided a windsock was needed to aid approaching craft to navigate the narrow channel and moor in the harbor, both day and night. McWilliam Windsocks supplied an internally illuminated windsock which was mounted on top of the harbor board workshop at the end of the harbor’s main pier.
The unit was manufactured to be installed on an already existing base plate on top of the workshop building. The unit was fitted on site and put into operation by harbor authority staff, requiring no special tools or equipment.
