Donegal retains 13 Blue Flags 02.06.15

DONEGAL is celebrating the retention of Blue Flag status at 13 beaches across the county. It sees Donegal go joint top of the rankings with County Kerry. The Council said it is delighted with the outcome "considering the more stringent qualifying conditions and local difficulties arising from recent storms".

The 13 Blue Flags were awarded to Bundoran, Rossnowlagh, Murvagh, Fintra, Naran (Portnoo), Carrickfinn, Killahoey (Dunfanaghy), Marblehill, Portsalon (Magherawarden), Lisfannon, Shroove, Culdaff and Downings.
"At a time when the Council is actively promoting Donegal as a tourism destination, having the joint highest number of Blue Flags can only assist in promoting Donegal as an excellent destination for visitors.
“The Blue Flag Award is the definitive international beach award recognised in 46 countries as an assurance of beach cleanliness and safety," said chief executive Seamus Neely.
