Letters to the Editor

As an Irish American who has visited Dún Laoghaire, I feel compelled to write to you about the proposal to bring cruise ships into the harbour.

I hope the town’s citizens and officials stop this from happening. I am pro-business but I think bringing in these ships will do irreparable damage to this beautiful town.

It has been several years since my visit but I can vividly recall the small, wonderful shops at the harbour, full of fresh fish, meats, vegetables and flowers, but I especially remember the people.
