Senator hopeful of Gaeltacht funding for airport road

Gaeltacht Minister Pat Carey says he will inspect the R259 Airport Road in West Donegal to see if his department can provide some funding to upgrade it.

Mr Carey made the commitment in the Seanad after the need for improvements was raised on the adjournment last evening by Senator Brian O'Domhnaill.

Speaking after their exchange, Senator O'Domhnaill said Minister Carey did show a genuine interest, and he's hopeful it will pay dividends
