Sadness at closure of Killybegs Maritime and Carpet Heritage Centre

There is sadness and disappointment in the south Donegal area over the closure of one of the area’s prime tourist attractions, the Killybegs Maritime and Carpet-Making Heritage Centre in Killybegs.

More than 75,000 people have visited the centre in the past 15 years.

It’s understood the closure is as a result of the building having been sold.

Clare Tully, of The Ritz Accommodation in Killybegs, was involved in the running of the centre  through a committee that ran a company limited by guarantee.

She outlined the background to what has happened to Ocean FM News.

She says they had to leave the centre building last week.
