|This 70m long concrete pier is used for fishing boats and
pleasure craft and is on the Clare Atlantic Coastline.
L&M Keating Ltd. constructed the initial 35m pier for Clare
County Council as a design and build mass concrete structure in
It was later extended a further 35m to approximately 1.2m
below lowest tidal level, as a re-enforced concrete box structure,
founded on bedrock. The exposed location and immersed
working presented construction difficulties, which were
overcome by the use of prefabrication and intertidal working
The adjacent seabed was dredged down to rock level, also by
intertidal working, and rock breaking was carried out along the
pier working face.
