Tournigan's Uranium Targets Continue to Expand
======================================================================

Vancouver, March 19, 2008 -- Tournigan Gold Corporation (TVC:TSX-V;
TGP: Frankfurt) has completed an airborne magnetic and radiometric
survey on its uranium licences in eastern Slovakia. The survey was
flown by McPhar Geosurveys Ltd. and identified 25 priority targets in
addition to the known deposits within Tournigan's uranium licences.

"This airborne survey confirms the considerable potential of the
uranium mineralization within our licences in Slovakia," said James
Walchuck, Tournigan's president and CEO. "Within our licences, we cover
the most important portions of the Slovak Carpathian uranium belt. We
are now following up with a detailed radiometric ground survey to
identify drill targets."

The purpose of the survey was to acquire high resolution radiometric
data in order to map the anomalies and locate potential economic
uranium mineralization.

Within the CJ licence (32 km2), which hosts the Kuriskova deposit, the
survey highlighted uranium and gamma anomalies that were traced for
approximately four kilometres on surface to the northwest of the
Kuriskova deposit.

Within the Spisska Nova Ves exploration licence (13 km2), which hosts
the Novoveska Huta deposit, anomalies appear to correspond to uranium
mineralization east of Tournigan's mining licence area.

Within the Kluknava licence (28 km2), located at the centre of the
Carparthian uranium belt, historic exploration and drilling confirmed
the area has similar geology to that of Kuriskova. The survey
identified new anomalies occurring in the western portion of the
licence.

The survey on the Spisska Teplica licence (45 km2) highlighted areas
with known historical resources and outlined new additional targets.

The airborne survey, consisting of 16,253 line kilometers, was flown by
McPhar Geosurveys Ltd. Flight lines were orientated almost north-south
at a spacing of 100 metres and tie lines were orientated almost
east-west at a spacing of 1,000 metres.

A follow up ground radiometric program will be initiated on these
anomalies as soon as the snow is off the ground with the intention of
establishing drill targets by the fourth quarter of this year.
Detailed maps of the airborne survey can be found on Tournigan's web
site at http://www.tournigan.com/i/pdf/Maps_031908NR.pdf.
