Dun Laoghaire pier records highest ever footfall

Positive signs so early in the year are a great boost for the town.

Fine Gael TD for Dun Laoghaire, Mary Mitchell O’Connor, has today (Thursday) welcomed the news that Dun Laoghaire pier experienced its highest number of visitors last Sunday.

“Over 24,274 people are reported to have visited the pier last Sunday (March 25
th) which is a fantastic boost for the town. Dun Laoghaire pier is renowned throughout Dublin as being an excellent place to bring your families for an afternoon stroll.

“Having so many people visit the pier has a knock on effect for the entire town as restaurants and shops will benefit from the increased numbers visiting the town.


“It is a very positive sign to see so many people visiting Dun Laoghaire so early in the year and I hope that this trend continues right throughout the year. A record 1.3 million people visited the pier in 2011 and I am confident that we can set a new record for 2012.”
