Killybegs based woman buys drugs boat

A catamaran once used to smuggle half a tonne of cocaine from the Carribean to west Cork in 2007 is en route to Donegal. The vessel has been sold at auction - raising 58 thousand euro for the State.

"Lucky Day" was for sale, along with two smaller boats and three jeeps used in the botched operation - which ended with Gardai and customs recovering 62 drugs bales from Dunlough Day.

The auction raised over a hundred thousand euro in total.

Emer Stafford from Tipperary, but who now lives in KIllbegs, is the new proud owner of "Lucky Day"
