ISLANDS Minister Joe McHugh has announced that his officials are to develop plans for the provision of a purpose-built ferry for Toraigh and for an extension to Machaire Rabhartaigh Pier to accommodate a new vessel.
The Minister of State made his comments after meeting with a delegation from Toraigh today.
Minister McHugh said: “As Minister for the Islands, it is essential for me that the residents of Toraigh are provided with all-year-round access to the mainland. I have listened carefully to the issues raised today and I have now asked my officials to develop plans for both a new boat and pier improvements. These plans will be worked on now in the time ahead with a view to bringing the plan to fruition in the medium-term. I want to reassure the islanders of Tory that I will have their best interests at heart throughout this process.”
