The commercial manager for the Port of Cork has been named as the Cork Person of the Month for October.

Captain Michael McCarthy, Commercial Manager, Port of Cork and Chairman of Cruise Europe, was presented with the monthly award to mark his work in increasing cruise liner traffic to Cork which will benefit the economy of the whole Cork region.

Throughout his 46 year career, Michael has built up a vast knowledge of the port and marine sector in a variety of roles including seagoing master, deputy harbour master and terminals manager. His current role with Port of Cork involves managing, developing and integrating corporate and strategic policy for the Port.

Manus O’Callaghan, Organiser of the Cork Person of the Year Awards said: “Michael’s 46 year contribution to the marine sector, and particularly his role with Port of Cork and increasing cruise liner traffic to Cork, makes him a worthy Cork Person of the Month. He has been very instrumental in developing that lucrative cruise liner business, both here in Ireland and throughout Europe, and his positive contribution to the business and tourism success of Cork and the wider region is extremely significant.”

At the award ceremony Captain McCarthy said: “I have been a very lucky person to have followed a career I love and be so genuinely passionate about our beautiful city and county, magnificent harbour, maritime heritage and culture. Each day brings new challenges including the ongoing development of the port for business, leisure and community, the redevelopment of Marino Point and the construction of a multi-function/second cruise terminal in Cobh to integrate the vision of Visit Cork in realising the 'maritime paradise' potential of our harbour.”
