The Aran Island Ferries ‘Queen of the Sea’ ferry was unable to reach Inis Oírr pier at around 8am this morning with waves breaking behind the pier.

It has long been argued that the island ‘s pier is in dire need of redevelopment and it has now been reiterated that people could be at risk if this work is not undertaken soon.

The local co-operative, Comhar Caomhán Inis Oírr has called for the Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humpheys, to address the problem “immediately”.

“The health and safety of the passengers and crew of the boat is at great risk,” said the co-operative.

“Minister Humphreys would need to act immediately, as people are risking their lives and we will not regret it in the future if any tragic accident occurs.”

The proposed works on Inis Oírr and Inis Meáin piers have long been a bone of contention.

The development of the Inis Oírr pier was granted planning permission in 2008 and although work was scheduled to commence in 2020, it has not yet commenced.

TD Éamon Ó Cuív raised the issue of the quay in the Dáil last year and said that ‘one day someone will be killed’ if it is not developed.
