Tournigan Confirms High-Grade Gold Veins at Curraghinalt with
Additional Deep Drill Hole
======================================================================

Vancouver, February 28, 2008 -- Tournigan Gold Corporation (TVC:TSX-V;
TGP: Frankfurt) today provided the results of a deep drill hole, CT-53,
at its Curraghinalt gold deposit in Northern Ireland. The hole was not
previously disclosed in the resource estimate announced December 5,
2007, as it was completed post deadline for resource evaluation.

CT-53 was drilled to a depth of 501 metres and located to the north of
the main resource zone. It was drilled as part of an ongoing program of
testing the down dip extension of the main resource. The hole
intersected 16 mineralized veins including seven of particularly high
grade. CT-53 returned similar vein grades and widths to those recorded
in hole CT-26; the last deep hole in the deposit that was included in
the December resource estimate.

Highlights include:

|444.79 |445.79 |1.00 |22.8 |
+--------+-------+----------+----------+

More details of the significant intercepts are listed below.

"Hole CT-53 elevates our confidence in the structure and down dip
extension of these high-grade gold veins at Curraghinalt," said
Tournigan president and CEO, James Walchuck. "We will continue to drill
at depth and along strike to extend this resource with plans for a
further 4,000 metres of infill and step out drilling in 2008."

The December 5, 2007 Curraghinalt resource estimate was prepared by
independent consultant Micon International Limited of Toronto. It
reported an indicated resource of 250,000 ounces of gold contained in
570,000 tonnes of material with an average grade of 13.95 grams of gold
per tonne, and an inferred resource of 350,000 ounces of gold contained
in 640,000 tonnes of material with an average grade of 17.15 grams of
gold per tonne based on a cut-off of 6 grams of gold per tonne and a
minimum vein width of 1 metre.

Vaughan Williams, P. Geo., Eur. Geol., of Aurum Exploration Services,
Tournigan's consulting geologist and a Qualified Person as defined by
National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical
disclosure contained herein.
