#SligoHarbour - Recent poor weather has forced a number of visiting yachts to hang tight in Sligo Port - but they were in no rush to leave as the annual Fleadh Cheoil took over the town this week.
And John Carton said an expansion of these initial steps would be even better for the northwest town, making things "a lot easier for tourists".
He added: "We've had guys from Shetland, Galway and the UK come in here last year especially for the Fleadh. The money they spend when they're here is unbelievable. They're spending between €1,000 - €2,000 when they're here in Sligo."
