Part of ‘famous’ Inishowen 100 left out of national tourism route
INISHOWEN councillors were outraged to learn that part of the famous ‘Inishowen 100’ route was not included in the Wild Atlantic Way.
Raising the issue at the bi-monthly meeting of the Inishowen Electoral Area Council in Carn in Tuesday, Culdaff councillor Bernard McGuinness was outraged when he discovered that parts of the Inishowen 100 route was omitted from the final Wild Atlantic Way map.
He said it is a very important issue and wants the whole of the Inishowen 100 included in it as he is worried that the whole concept of it could be lost if it is left out.
The Fine Gael councillor said the reason that the Kinnego Bay road and the Glasmullan road, between Drumfries and Clonmany, were left out was because of the road conditions.
However, Senior Roads Engineer, Charlie Kerr said he addressed these issues with Fáilte Ireland prior to the Wild Atlantic Way being finalised.
