This was also the second year of the Shell sponsorship fund, which is operated in partnership with the rig contractor Transocean. The fund grew this year to support a total of 16 sporting and voluntary organisations in the Killybegs parish.

As an oil distribution company, Shell has had a long association with County Donegal through a link with Donegal Oil.

Also since 2002, SEPIL has had a close connection with the county and especially with Killybegs harbour which has been the supply base for the exploration and subsea construction work on the Corrib Field. Up to €3 million worth of business was generated in Donegal last year with Killybegs port and Carickfin airport the major beneficiaries.
