And will the €40,000 Faberge Egg they find go onto Gabrielle’s Christmas List?

To find out more about the expensive egg!... watch The Local Eye, it's on tomorrow night, Thursday, December 22nd on RTÉ One at 7pm

Killybegs continues to develop the cruise business which is a relatively new sector that has attracted famous lines. Among them Holland America Line (HAL) which called in September (see report's photo) followed by next port of call 'albeit' anchorage in Galway Bay. 

The cruiseship calls to Killybegs will be given another boost given Cunard's announcement to deploy both 'Vista' class sisters in 2018. The sisters are the 90,000 tonnes Queen Elizabeth and  Queen Victoria.  

The north-west port has relied heavily on the more traditional fishing industry which was followed by that of the energy and exploration sectors.
