My Department understands that Donegal County Council has now located a preferred site for the development of a helipad on Toraigh island and that it is in the early stage of the design process. My Department has not yet received an application for funding for this project from Donegal County Council. However, I can assure the Deputy that any such application will be considered positively, having regard to the funds available.
