Carlisle Pier Exhibition at Dun Laoghaire Harbour
to extend opening hours due to huge public interest
The Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company today (Wednesday 4th February) announced extended opening hours for the exhibition of proposals to redevelop the derelict Carlisle Pier in the Harbour. Very large numbers have visited the exhibition since it opened on Friday 30th January with over one thousand viewers in a five hour period last Sunday alone.
Four short-listed proposals with visual representations and large scale models are on show in the Ferry Terminal Building in the Harbour. The proposals have been designed by major Irish and international architects to comply with the zoning requirement for the site to have an â€œexceptional landmark building of international architectural qualityâ€.
The extended opening hours will be:
Thursday 5th February: 11am to 8 pm
Friday 6th February: 11am to 8 pm
Saturday 7th February: 10am to 6pm
Sunday 8th February: 10 am to 6 pm
In response to a number of requests the Harbour Company has also extended the deadline for the receipt of comments and submissions on the redevelopment proposals to Wednesday 18th February.
Admission to the exhibition is free.
