History

HistoryEstablished in 1853 by James Wheeler the dockyard was originally called Rushbrooke Dockyard. Irish Shipping, the fledgling national shipping company set up a repair dockyard in Rushbrooke, and in 1957 they invited Dutch shipping magnet Cornelius Verolme to purchase the dockyard and assist in the development of the Irish Building Industry. Under Verolmes stewardship, 33 ships were built in the dockyard and at its peak, over 1500 men were employed. The ship building industry in Ireland collapsed in the early 1980’s and the dockyard closed.

In 1995 the dockyard was purchased by the Doyle Group and renamed Cork Dockyard. The dockyard is now part of the Burke Shipping Group the chief operating subsidiary of the Doyle Group. Burke Shipping are Ireland's leading shipping company with facilities in all the major Irish ports including; Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Foynes (Limerick), Fenit and Killybegs. The group provides customers with integrated shipping and logistics solutions through its services; Chartering, Ship Liner & Cruise Agency, Terminal Operations, Forwarding, Warehousing, Customs Clearance, Marine Engineering and Repair.
