|This work was carried out to stabilise Boulder Clay Cliffs, which
were being eroded by Atlantic storms at Quilty, Co. Clare. A
number of dwellings had ended up within metres of the cliff
The project consisted of soil nailing the cliff and provision of a
gunite facing, as well as ancillary works such as fencing,
extension of drainage, water outfalls etc.
A 20,000t rock armour revetment was created along the high
water mark to further protect the shore.
The only plant access to the site was across a beach at low
water and created a considerable logistical challenge.
