Fisheries Policy

GCFA has no fears of dealing with Louth County Council when it has already written to the EU in Brussels and been heard!

Sunday morning last saw a brief but busy meeting of Greenore-Cooley Fisherman's Association in No 5 Anglesea Terrace, Greenore, Co. Louth.

The secretary, Seán Crudden, reported that he had written to the EU consultation on fisheries policy before Christmas in line with an instruction from the previous meeting of GCFA. Asking for tighter quotas for mackeral being fished at sea. This was to give anglers fishing from the shore in Greenore a better chance. Eric Cuthbert asked the secretary to write further to the EU asking for a cap of 2 feathers when angling for mackeral. "Using 6 or 8 feathers shows greedy disprespect for the holy mackeral," he opined.

As Cooley is recognised as an area of excellence the secretary was instructed to write to the County Community and Voluntary Forums's representative on the Louth County Council's Strategic Policy Committee dealing with infrastructure. To provide a toilet and bins on The Cutting in Greenore.

After some discussion it was decided to attempt to convene an AGM of GCFA in September.

The next meeting of GCFA was fixed for Corpus Christi, Sunday 6 June 2010, at 10.00 in Anglesea Terrace, Greenore.

Report on Greenore Cooley Fisherman’s Association Meeting Sunday 19th September 2010

A special meeting of Greenore-Cooley Fisherman’s Association took place in No. 5 Anglesea Terrace, Greenore on Sunday 19 September 2010. The meeting commenced at 10.20 AM after breakfast and concluded at 10.40 AM.
The meeting heard that Greenore had received 277 marks in the All-Ireland Tidy Towns competition, the chairperson of GCFA said “John Daly had been elected to the chair of Greenore Residents’ and Tidy Towns Association as predicted by the Archbishop at the March meeting.
Coastal erosion is a neglected problem in Greenore with much erosion taking lands south of the Cutting as far as Ballagan. The dust in Greenore from loading animal feed had not gone away. It was suggested that a suction system like the one used in Belfast to off-load animal feed from the ships was the answer to the problem. Not only was the dust a problem when it was being blown in over the village but also when it was being blown out to sea blinding and choking people in boats on the Lough. The secretary was instructed to refer to both the problem of dust and of coastal erosion when he was writing to the county secretary.
