Foynes is a town situated on the southern shore of the Shannon Estuary in the west of County Limerick on the N69 scenic driving route. Foynes has a picturesque main street of limestone cut buildings and is home to a major deep water seaport, with capacity for very large vessels. This port is nationally significant as the second largest seaport in Ireland. The port has witnessed major development in the past number of years and plays a significant role in the towns economic structure. A recent publication by Shannon Foynes Port Company sets out a master plan in order to promote and support the provision of port infrastructure and services in the Shannon Estuary for the next 30 years.

The master plan looks specifically at growth and expansion options at its facilities at Foynes Port and Limerick Docks.

Building Energy Rating (BERs)

Building Energy Ratings (BERs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an BER. BERs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
