Ballast Bank, Wexford

A photograph of the Ballast Bank, which lies in the harbour of Wexford Town. This is an old artificial island that was built back in 1937. Ballast materials (stone and sand) were used to give the ship balance whenever the boat had no cargo. On this island, they were able to drop off or take on ballast materials, depending on whether they needed them or not.

Here is another shot from the other site, taken from the marina. Taken at the beginning of September in 2014, just as summer was about to come to a close:
