GCD update

Paul Quinn has very kindly sent on some recent photos of the work in progress at the Grand Canal Dock in Dublin. Two of the photos show the strengthening of Hanover Quay and the third shows the new slipway, which is now complete and in use. I’ve added the photos towards the end of the existing GCD page here.

L & M Keating at work here.

L+M Keating again

Here are some photos of recent L+M Keating projects.


I’ve moved my pics of dredgers to a new page and added a few more.


Here are some photos of dredging and related operations under way in Limerick. There are some pics of small workboats too.


The installation of the new pontoon, the flood control gates (flash lock) and the walkway continues apace.

Walkway (left) and pontoon from the lockhouse

The lower (nearer) section of pontoon may be for the lakeboat hire business

Boats mooring on the lower end of the pontoon, and turning to approach upstream, may get quite close to the bridge. The navigation markers may confuse too: perhaps they’ll be relocated.

It all looks very nice. There are lots of people working on site.


L & M Keating, contractors, are currently working on Portumna Bridge, Killaloe flood gates and Shannon Harbour houseboat moorings. Some info and pics here, with links to info on some projects.
