McHugh Announces €650,000 for Donegal Airport


Minister Joe McHugh has confirmed Donegal Airport, Carrickfinn is to get €650,060 in funding for the development of the airport.

“Donegal Airport is like a jewel in the crown of the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal and financial backing like this is an investment in the top class people who run the airport and those who are fortunate enough to get to use it,” Minister McHugh said.

This funding comes on the back €326,700 funding that was sanctioned earlier this year to cover costs associated with safety and security.

Minister McHugh added: “Donegal Airport at Carrickfinn is right up there every year among the world’s top travel experts and public as one of the most scenic places in the world to fly in and out of.
