Today With Sean O Rourke Friday 9 February 2018
Tory Island Ferry
The people of Tory Island are not happy with Minister of State Joe McHugh following a decision to refurbish a forty two year ferry to service the island. The islanders feel the decision is a backward step in terms of servicing the island.
Majorie Ui Chearbhail, manager of the Tory Island Co-Op and Fianna Fail Councillor Seamus O’Domhnaill spoke to the programme about this today.
