Funding Application

Donegal Council has put in an application for a million Euros of emergency funding for the damage done during the storm.

This includes a request for €50,000 to €60,000 to repair the shore walk path.

How feasible this is I don’t know. The Government have been in a taking mood rather than a giving mood in recent years.


Martin Farren has been in phone touch with Labour junior Minister for Roads & Transportation, Alan Kelly, to let him know how important the Shore walk path is to Moville and its tourist trade and Martin said he was sympathetic.

Martin reckons that we should see a response soon.

Whether that will be positive or negative we will have to wait and see – but any amount could prove very useful.
