Abstract: The coastline of Ireland has been embellished through the accretion of piers, jetties, quays and breakwaters to facilitate the ever-evolving nature of the shipping and fishing industries in the past millennium. These structures represent a significant infrastructural system that has shaped local and national Irish culture for centuries. While Ireland’s major ports have been carefully documented and researched, much of this infrastructure, though once intrinsic to the economic wealth and welfare of local communities, has fallen into disrepair as the industries that once generated their development have been centralized to the major ports. With damage from the seas ever increasing, it has become critical to document these minor harbour structures to describe and elaborate the entwined nature of their development with the communities they had once served
