The "Tredagh" at Arklow (1988)
The "Tredagh" at Arklow (1988)
Arklow harbour has the disadvantage of having sandy beaches to the north and south and an unpredictable bar, near the mouth of the Avoca, which can move without warning. It is also unusual, in Ireland, in having only about a metre variation between high and low water LinkExternal link. The “Tredagh” was a suction dredger used to dredge the harbour and surrounding area. She was replaced by the grab dredger “Breckland” T2572 : The "Breckland" at Arklow (1993) and is believed to have been sold for commercial sand dredging on Lough Neagh. The North Quay (background) has since been redeveloped.
