Inishowen gets set for daring Red Arrows 22.05.14

THE world-famous Red Arrows will take to the skies of Inishowen next month with their aerial display of daredevil manoeuvres set to thrill spectators from Muff to Greencastle.
Brought to the North West by a partnership between Donegal County Council, Limavady Borough Council and Derry City Council, the RAF Red Arrows will perform their flying display as a stunning send-off to the Clipper 2013-14 Round the World Yacht Race in Greencastle on Sunday, June 29.
Fiona McLaughlin and John Lynch from Scoil Cholmcille, Greencastle, jump for joy ahead of the arrival of the Red Arrows to their village.
The distinctive red jets, which are this year celebrating their 50th display season, will execute their trademark formations, close-passes and dynamic loops and rolls at the mouth of the River Foyle between Greencastle and Magilligan.
Thousands of people are expected to descend upon the North West coast to capture a clear vantage point of the Red Arrows’ stunning performance and celebrate the official yacht race start. The Inishowen Maritime Museum in Greencastle is also expecting huge crowds through its doors on the day.

Donegal Mayor Cllr Ian McGarvey said: “I am sure this will attract visitors from across the region and beyond to the Lough Foyle area. Their exciting air display will be an excellent way to see off the Clipper Race as the fleet prepares to sets sail off the coast of Greencastle."
Derry Mayor Cllr Martin Reilly added: “It is a major coup to have the Red Arrows perform and their display will provide a suitably spectacular final flourish to our week-long LegenDerry Maritime Festival. We are delighted to have been able to facilitate this in partnership with our friends in Limavady and Donegal, who are bringing the world-famous Red Arrows here."
