“The last 12 months have been challenging for all sectors. We would like to thank our team in particular, for their unstinting support in their role as key workers throughout the pandemic. We look forward to progressing the opportunities that we are working on in 2021. Please all do stay safe during these continuing difficult times.”

Infrastructure Minister, Minister Mallon said: “The Harbour Authority has identified a range of infrastructure works required at the port as a result of the challenges arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.

This funding will therefore provide vital support following a difficult year for the port, and will enable it to work towards economic recovery as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic.   

I am pleased to be able to support Warrenpoint Harbour Authority with this bid and to provide support as the port  adapts to the requirements of future business needs.”
