There is great earning potential there for the town. 85% will
disembark - if quality shops, tourist information, Wi-Fi, post office
and duty free were set up at the Tender Docking point profits
could be made. Shops in the town should do a 'discount book'
to entice visitors to their premises.
Add to this the value of tours to the general Irish economy,
cruise ship passengers will bring buying power to our shores.

As I said before the Cruise Ships can only bring opportunities to the Town and it's up to Dun laoghaire people to make the best of them.

Can you clear somthing up for me folks. Remember Mullet in the Harbour, looked like small sharks that would feed off the surface? My old man told me to not bother trying to catch them because they were like catfish, surface and bottom feeders and because of that you couldn't catch them with hooks and bait because they had no interest and even if you did apparently the hook would tear through their soft lips, and he also said they were inedible anyway.
Then I was watching Master Chef during the week and the contestants had to go work in a 3 star restaurant for a day. Anyway the most popular dish on the menu was Mullet, just looked them up and they look nothing like the lads that used to hang about in the harbour.

This is a google image of Mullet. So what's the story, were they actually Mullet in the Harbour?

Nah not them Skins, the others were grey. I think I caught on or two of those red ones off the west pier though. You could catch some mad looking things down there cause they would get caught up in nets and get thrown into the harbour off the coal pier where they were sorted. Probably still happens these days.

Heard manchan Magan with George Hook on FM106 talking about a selection of Lighthouses to visit. Great stuff. Love Manchan and his travelling.
