Donegal County Councillor Martin Farren welcomed the news and thanked the senior management of the council for ‘ensuring the funding is there in the budget each year for the ferries’.
He said the running of the ferries each summer means local businesses and those hoping to use the ferries can ‘plan ahead’.
The Labour Colr said he hopes both ferries ‘bring a lot of people into the Inishowen peninsula’.
