'It was French film-maker Sophie Toscan du Plantier’s dream to have a holiday home in beautiful Schull in west Cork. But on 23 December 1996, she was brutally murdered outside that holiday home, the poetry book she had been reading chillingly left open on a page occupied by the Yeats poem 'A Dream of Death'.

For 23 years the story of her murder has not left the headlines, the victim overshadowed by Ian Bailey, the main suspect in the case, who has consistently maintained his innocence and claimed attempts were made to frame him for the crime, but who was the focus of a historic trial in absentia in Paris in 2019.

All of this activity was triggered and continued to be driven during the entire period by the actions of the port authorities known as The Ballast Board and, after 1786, The Corporation for the preservation and improvement of the port of Dublin.
