Éamon Ó Cuív T.D., Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, has announced that he has sanctioned a grant of €20,000 to finish works on the slipway at Poll an Mhadaidh Beach on Árainn Mhór in Co. Donegal. Work began on the slipway last year with funding from the minor works programme for the islands and it was agreed at the time to finish that work this year. Works on the slipway cost €80,000 in total, with the County Council providing 50% of that funding. “I am happy to grant this funding as it will enable the County Council to now finish these works that began last year,” the Minister said. “They will greatly enhance sustainability and island community life on Árainn Mhór.”

We've got a favour to ask
More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.
Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.
So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
