A group of local contractors, led by Pat Doherty of the Doagh Island Famine Village, will tomorrow complete work on widening the road over Mamore Gap which will allow tourist coaches and larger buses to negotiate the scenic route.

“I have spoken to tour companies and they do not come to Inishowen as they feel there is not enough to see,” Mr Doherty said.
