The Ballyliffin and Clonmany Tourism Group have received funding from the Inishowen Development Partnership (IDP) for the development of a tourism destination brochure promoting the area.

The publication will be distributed by the group within the "Main Village" at the upcoming Irish Open Golf Championship along with various other locations.

The launch night will take place at Ballyliffin Golf Club this Friday night.

Representatives of Failte Ireland, Donegal Tourism,  IDP and Inishowen councillors are expected to be in attendance.

Meanwhile, Sunday tickets for the 18th grandstand at the 2018 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open hosted by the Rory Foundation have sold out completely, and fans hoping to get exclusive front-row seats for the prestigious event are now being urged to act quickly with limited tickets remaining.

 Golf fans looking to get the best seats in the house to watch the game’s elite players still have the opportunity do so for the first three tournament days.

Tickets begin at €20 for Pro-Am on the Wednesday, with tickets for Thursday and Friday costing €32 and day tickets for the weekend costing €34 each.

 An adult season souvenir ticket, which covers five days from Wednesday to Sunday costs  €110.

Concessions are available for customers aged over 60 and between 14 and 17, while children up to 13 are permitted free entry when accompanied by a ticket holding adult.
