Elly Bay & Tawin Point

Gerry Egan, B.E.C.Eng FIEI

"I recently inspected each location and found both revetments to be fully intact and blended in to the local environment. The ECAB`s provided a better solution to Rock Armour especially in Elly Bay which is a highly sensitive location visually."


Elly Bay (Mayo) and Tawin Point (Galway):

  • Both were built at the turn of the millenium
  • Both were undertaken by the Department of the Marine to protect Road Infrastructure
  • Their age show clearly how the ECABs have matured, stood the test of mighty Atlantic storms and today, blend into the environment
  • Marram Grass has colonized the tops of the ECABs

  • Mayo County Council subsequently installed two further revetments in Achill Island and Belmullet
