One hundred submissions on future of Inishbofin and Cleggan airstrips

Published

on

Galway Bay fm newsroom – 100 submissions have been received from the public on the future of the airstrips at Inishbofin and Cleggan.
The airstrips were developed and completed in 2009 with government funding with the original objective of scheduled air services to Inishbofin.
A public consultation process got underway earlier this year with submissions being sought until last Friday on suggestions for the future use of the sites.
Galway West Fianna Fail TD Eamon O’Cuiv has previously said it’s essential that the airstrips are retained as airfields so that connectivity is not lost.
He called on the Gaeltacht Minister, Galway West TD Sean Kyne, to ensure any future agreement would allow for the continued use of the sites as landing pads for the coastguard.
In a statement to Galway Bay fm news, Minister Kyne says 100 submissions have been received by his department.
The submissions are being analysed, and Minister Kyne will then receive a briefing on their contents.
