WORK IN PROGRESS: Engineers have already used an astonishing 10,000 cubic metres of concrete as part of the €30M Letterkenny Waste Water Treatment scheme. More than 80 people are employed on the pipe-laying project.
REAL THING FOR IDP: The Inishowen Development Project has won a top national award, sponsored by CocaCola. The charity won €10k and was one of 15 charities to benefit in the scheme.
WATER ROW: Ten businesses in Letterkenny are in the ‘last chance saloon’ having been told to cough up water charges or face disconnection within days. The council has urged the businesses to talk.
SURF’S UP: It may be nine months away, but the Sea Sessions has announced their programme for Bundoran next year. The festival will take place on June 29th, 3oth and July 1st, 2012. See the full line-up here www.seasessions.com
GREAT YARN IN KILCAR: Donegal Yarns in Kilcar is to create 10 new jobs in a project supported by Údarás na Gaelachta.
CUT SPEEDS – NOT TURNS: More than 30 businesses are opposing an NRA plan to block the right turn at the Dry Arch service station – and want a speed reduction instead. The road into Letterkenny currently has a limit of 100 km/hr. The businesses want that reduced to 60 km/hr. The issue was first highlighted by us here http://www.donegaldaily.com/2011/09/02/road-barrier-plan-threatens-future-of-22-jobs-at-letterkenny-store/
GARDA STATIONS TO GO: Fourteen Donegal garda stations could close in cutbacks, half of what was first feared. Sinn Fein has called on communities to oppose the plans.Tags:
