Looking their best for the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open 26.06.18

WITH just over one week to go before thousands of golfing fans descend on Ballyliffin for the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, communities right across the Inishowen peninsula have been working hard to get their towns and villages looking their very best for this special event.
Newly elected Cathaoirleach of Inishowen Municipal District Cllr Martin Farren has seen first hand the tremendous work that is being done by people all across the peninsula saying: “This is a very exciting time for everyone in Inishowen and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for millions of people across the globe to see our beautiful corner of the world”.
Over 80 applications have been received for Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Best Dressed Shopfront competition where the lucky winners will win €1,500 and have the opportunity to be treated to full corporate hospitality in the Dubai Duty Free’s own private pavilion on the 18th green at Ballyliffin Golf Club on Thursday 5th July.

The response to this competition has been phenomenal so much so that the organisers have extended the entry deadline to Wednesday 27 June at 12 noon. So anyone looking to enter this competition still has an opportunity to do so, just email ddfgolf@donegalcoco.ie .
Those driving through Inishowen over the last week will not have missed the gigantic golf balls located at specific locations around the peninsula including the mini green at the entrance to Buncrana.

With up to 100,000 visitors expected in Ballyliffin for the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, An Garda Síochána is advising local residents to consider any impending travel plans they may have scheduled from the 4 - 8 July. They are asking motorists to expect delays and leave plenty of time for journeys during what is expected to be a very busy time on the roads.
Lough Foyle ferry operators are putting on an additional vessel over the course of the Irish Open and this will see extra sailings from Magilligan to Greencastle over the course of the event.
