Based on these proposals, a series of tidal gates will be built between the ends of the two terminals extending to Dublin Bay, as part of the "worst case" study, in an attempt to stop flooding at the Central Pier in Dublin.
However, there is no cost to plan and work and it is not expected to have any time in the near future.
Dublin City Council says it expects 2050-
2080 before the impact of global warming, the capital should take measures.

The one-meter-high movable wall will be located between the Poolbeg Lighthouse and the North cow lighthouse, supported by many pillars.
The walls are also being inspected by Dutch engineers, which will break the energy of a series of waves entering the bay and prevent serious damage from further entering the capital center along the river.
"With the rise of sea level, more energy and the instability of the weather, you will get a stronger ocean.
"As a defense strategy for these countries, you can't just rely on coastline defense," Mr Leahy said . ".
Dublin City Council has spent about 80 euros over the past six years on flood relief in the capital, the worst flood in the state's history in 2002.
