The new Killybegs Harbour Business brochure, which showcases Killybegs as the modern, vibrant and forward looking harbour location off the North West coast, will be launched tonight at 7pm in the Bayview Hotel, Killybegs.
This brochure will serve as a tool to market the facilities available and the on-line version can be adapted to reflect the ever-changing landscape and services in the harbour.
Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr Terence Slowey says that Donegal County Council is delighted to deliver this marketing tool for Killybegs. “Killybegs plays a very important role within our county and the economic and tourism spin-off from the harbour is very significant. We have been working in partnership with the Killybegs Business Chamber and the Department of Argiculture, Food and the Marine to develop this brochure which will serve as an important marketing tool for Killybegs”.
The brochure outlines all the key facts about Ireland’s premier sea-port from the manufacturing and engineering companies who deliver their products to various parts of the world from their Killybegs base, to the more recent facilitation of cruise ships into its deep water harbour – where they can disembark and explore Donegal.
Local facilities, services and service providers are also included and Donegal Airport is showcased for it’s role as a transport hub and air-support base for offshore operations particularly since exploration activity commenced off Ireland’s western and north western seaboard in 1998. The brochure also acknowledges the important role LYIT has in delivering practical and theoretical education in Wind Energy Technology.
The continued investment in the harbour in Killybegs has allowed it to evolve into a multi-functional port serving the fishing, energy and cruise sectors. This new brochure positions Killybegs as the offshore centre of choice for logistics, cargo handling, manufacturing, engineering, vessel support and leisure cruising. Killybegs has a wealth of expertise and its adaptability and flexibility ensures that it can meet any challenge in an ever-changing environment.
