Safety signage has been erected by Donegal County Council at Dunaff, Rockstown harbour and on the New Line road in Clonmany.

The signage is in place in order to warn and alert tourists and visitors of the tidal and current dangers in the area. Additional signage on the “island” at ‘The Casan’ further advises all on tidal awareness and the need for care at sea.

The importance and need for the signage had been raised with Council officials by Councillor Albert Doherty. Speaking on his motion seeking funding for safety at Council owned ports and harbours Colr. Doherty welcomed the prompt response to his request for signage.

He said: “Representations were received from locals for signage following a recent tragedy and emphasis was also placed on having adequate and informative information for the many visitors.”

He added that with increased visitor numbers, the promotion of Malin Head, as well the envisaged development of the ‘Wild Atlantic Way,’, the new Clonmany signage is “timely” as “hopefully” another improving tourist season beckons.
