Council told Aura should be attracting more major events to Letterkenny

Letterkenny Town Council has been told the Aura Leisure Complex is not reaching its full potential in terms of night time events.

Cllr Jimmy Kavanagh raised the issue, comparing the faclity to INEC in Killarney and the Royal Theatre Complex in Castlebar. He said the Mayo venue, which is a similar size, continues to host major national and international acts on a regular basis.

Cllr Kavanagh argues that with proper marketting and planning, the Aura Centre could be better used. There have been indications that more is to come, and there is more coordination with other venues planned.

Cllr Kavanagh says that's to be welcomed...................
