Donegal Airport

Post by Paultojo » Thu May 19, 2022 8:29 pm

Way out in the north west of Ireland is Donegal Airport beside Carrickfinn beach, with Errigal Mountain as a backdrop to the east a rather pleasant spot to visit, only 3 scheduled flights a day to and from Dublin under one of the EU PSO contacts so not the busiest airport ;) but it's a hour and 20 minute drive from Derry through some great scenery

super set Paul and what a background - even the last one is brilliant and there's no aircraft in sight - but I do believe that might be a military mountain so maybe you should post it on FC :lol:
