Letterkenny could become a base for visiting motor homes

Letterkenny Town Council is to look into providing a serviced site for motor homes, with Cllr Jimmy Kavanagh calling it a growth area that should be tapped into. It follows a recent initiative by a supplier in the town which saw hundreds of motor homes at a recent weekend event.

Raising the issue in the chamber this week, Cllr Kavanagh said while Letterkenny's designation as a gateway town is seen as a business and investment issue, the town is also ideally placed as a gateway to the beaches and scenic areas of Donegal and the wider region.

He says the ready availability of all weather facilities is a major selling point...........
