Mis-use of electrical power in Waterways Ireland harbours

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and owners of vessels that we have been experiencing tampering with Waterways Ireland power bollards, where the card reader/wiring/circuit has been interfered with to enable access to free power.

Waterways Ireland advises masters and owners of vessels that:-

1. This practice is illegal.
2. This practice is highly dangerous.
3. This practice damages the equipment and reduces the facilities available to other boaters.

Waterways Ireland will take steps to prosecute this criminal activity where witnessed.

If boat users witness the mis-use of power bollards please report the locations and details of the mis-use to info@waterwaysireland.org

Waterways Ireland thanks our customers for their support in relation to this matter.
