Bundoran in Co. Donegal and Enniscrone in Co. Sligo are to be allocated upwards of €500,000 to help develop the towns as tourism destinations.
The money comes from Failte Ireland’s ‘Destination Town’s Scheme’ with a total funding nationally of €15.5m.
The final figure is to be decided in January 2020.
Donegal Sinn Fein Councillor, Michael McMahon, says the residents of Bundoran have ‘earned the funding.’.
While Enniscrone based Independent Councillor, Joe Queenan says the town is one of the leading tourism areas in the county
