NWRA makes submission on National Ports Policy

The Northern and Western Regional Assembly has a submission to the Department of Transport’s consultation regarding the review of Ireland’s National Ports Policy.

Given the importance of our port network in facilitating trade, managing marine resources and in supporting Ireland’s transition to a low carbon society, it is imperative that the National Ports Policy is updated to focus on the new opportunities and challenges being experienced by our ports and coastal communities.

This topic is of particular importance to the Northern and Western Region of Ireland, with the region home to a number of “Ports of Regional Significance” – including the Port of Galway, Killybegs Harbour and Ros An Mhíl – as well as other important fisheries ports including – but not limited to – Sligo Port and Greencastle.
