    I think theres only a few places left on this

    Major Boost for Donegal Tourism

    Donegal Tourism is about to receive a significant boost from an unlikely source. With the country all set to cheer on the ‘Boys in Green’ this summer, one enterprising Danish sea captain has capitalised on the football feel-good factor currently encapsulating the country.


    Commercial fishing vessel captain Pilaf Loor from the fishing village of Faro Liplo in Denmark, plans to ferry North-West football fans from Donegal to the Faroe Islands for the World Cup clash on October 16th. Loor, who is a regular visitor to Donegal shores, is fully aware of the county’s interest in football. Speaking to Donegalnow.com, the Danish native was excited at the prospect; “For sure I’m excited, from my fishing visits to Donegal shores, I’m fully aware that Shay Given plays for Aston Villa, although I was very sad when he left Newcastle as I used to stay in the city as a younger man and even went to a few games.”

    When asked if his enterprising venture has attracted much interest, Loor was upbeat. “The vessel can hold up to 48 people with up to four people in each cabin. I have received numerous enquiries, not just from Donegal but also County Derry and that’s without any advertising.”

    But why is he so confident that his venture will take off? The Dane continued; “I think people and football fans for sure like an adventure and this trip will be of interest to them. I have already received a license from the Irish Sailing Association for the trip and the boat has passed an annual safety inspection, which was carried out by the Department of Transport. It’s full steam ahead as far as I’m concerned.”

    But how much will this once in a lifetime adventure cost? Loors boat ‘Big Jan' will leave Buncrana on Friday morning October 12th and arrive at the Scottish Outer Hebrides islands in time for the Germany V Ireland World Cup qualifier on Friday evening. After spending the night on the island it’s on to the Faroes where Loors has plenty of activities organised for the travelling revellers. “The locals are really looking forward to the Irish arriving, we have five bars on the island and when Ireland came out of the hat for our group it meant so much for the local economy”.

    Not only that but it may also open up more routes to Donegal from Northern Europe.

    The total cost for the trip is €259 and places are going very fast. For further information on the trip and reservations you can email Pilaf on pilafloor1.4@gmail.com or ring 0045 43 73 76 90

    They were 12/1 during the 2nd half on Friday.I wouldn't back against club
