As part of Project Ireland 2040, the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed TD, announced the signing of a €14.7 million capital works contract to deliver a 120m long quay development and associated works at Smooth Point, Killybegs Fishery Harbor Centre, Co. Donegal.

Commenting the signing of the contract with contractor ABCO/Fugro JV, Minister Creed said: “This is a very significant investment for the North West coast of Ireland which will be a big boost to Killybegs and Donegal in general.”

“The project will add a further 120 meters of workable quay space in the harbor and, as a result, will improve safety conditions in the harbor by alleviating congestion during the peak fishing season at this major port.”
