Warrenpoint have undertaken a study to justify the dumping of huge amounts of dredge material, mainly mobile silt, in the middle of Carlingford Lough.

In any case it is opposed by communities living around the Lough notably the Love Your Lough.

BBC News covered it in one of their NI segments with some local input.
