Up to 1,000 protesters including children and members of the clergy staged a protest march to Junior Minister Dinny McGinley’s office in Bunbeg.
There was no sign of the Minister but the crowd let it be known that they will not stand by and watch teachers be cut from small schools across Donegal.
Among those who spoke at today’s uplifting protest rally was Fr Sean Gallagher, PP of Gortahork as well as local teachers Cathal O’Fearraigh and Daithi Roberts.
Parents and children travelled form across the county waving placards.
Many of the placards revealed where the protesters had travelled from including
Gartan, Arranmore, Glenties, Cloughaneely and across the Rosses.
