The County Manager has been outling the potential of Killybegs as a service port for wind and wave energy.

Seamus Neely was speaking at the Association of Irish Regions conference in the Marine Institute in Galway this week.

It was told that ESB international intends to begin building the State’s first full-scale ocean energy project off the west coast early next year.

Four sites off Mayo, Galway, and north Clare are under consideration for the project.
