Donegal man gets award from FBI
A Ballyshannon man working with eBay in California has received an award from the FBI for helping to stop the sale of military weapons online.
Eoghan McKee, 27, has been working at the company’s San Jose base since last year.
Eoghan works in the company’s cyber crime unit and has now received a citation from the FBI for his help during the operation.
Bitten by insect
A Kincasslagh man who was bitten by an insect more than two years ago is still waiting for a hospital appointment.
Noel O’Donnell, 65, was brought to a doctor after his leg became swollen up and was put on a drip.
However he was sent home and was told he would be sent for when an appointment with a consultant at Letterkenny General Hospital was available.
Noel says he now still has problems with mobility and had to ask someone to cut turf for him last year.
He says he is lucky that his complaint was not something even more serious or he would be dead.
New catch for Donegal fishermen
Fishermen along the Donegal coast are set to reap the benefits of a new deal on boarfish.
MEPs in Strasbourg have given the green light to allow fishermen along the west and northwest coast to catch Boarfish with nets with smaller mesh sizes.
The relatively new species is fished for industrial purposes at the moment but it has the potential to have much wider appeal for human consumption.
Northwest MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher says it’s good news for the fishermen.
