It’s expected a clearance operation in response to an accidental collision in Dingle Harbour will be concluded at the weekend.

Last Friday, an international trawler collided with a number of smaller vessels and caused damage to the marina itself, in particular to pontoons.

It’s suspected that a mechanical failure caused the accident.
