Council urged to help fund Letterkenny airstrip development

Letterkenny Town Council is to invite members of the Stevenson Family and the local aero club to a meeting next month to discuss how the authority can help with the ongoing improvement of the airstrip on Stevensons Field outside the town.

Cllr Jim Lynch says the council should provide financial support, however, County manager Seamus Neely and Cllr Ciaran Brogan both warned there is no money available for work on the facility.

However, Cllr Lynch says if anything, the council has hindered rathered than helped the ongoing development of the facility, and that should be rectified...........
