Council considering monument to replace “Bad Eddie”


It is hoped the Donegal County Council will allocate funding this year for a munument to mark the iconic ship wreck 'Bad Eddie'

The boat was washed up at Magheraclogher in the 1970s, and came to national fame when it featured in Clannad and U2’s ‘In a lifetime’ video in the 1980s.

It is accepted that the wreck itself cannot be saved and presents and health and safety hazzard to visitors and children playing on the beach.

Local Councillor Cllr John Seamais O Fearraigh wants a monument built close to the wreck and is now hopeful funding will be forthcoming for it..................
