MV Otterbank will carry out plough dredging daily from 7am to 8pm. 

“Access to the pier and movements within the harbour will be restricted during these works and all other harbour users and boat operators are asked to exercise caution while manoeuvring within the harbour,” the council said.

This is essential work to ensure the safe operation of the harbour for all users and to enable any necessary rescue launch by the RNLI Lifeboat for the safety of those at sea.  

The work will be supervised by Donegal County Council.
