A tense stand-off is taking place in Ballybofey after a number of traveller families tried to move into a car park.
Initially just a couple of caravans tried to move into Kavanagh’s Supervalu close to Finn Park.
But a number of other camper vans soon arrived a short time later.
Gardai were called and a stand-off has ensued.
No arrests have been made but negotiations are ongoing to try and resolve the situation.
One eye-tiness said the situation developed very quickly.
“A couple of caravans arrived and there were words.
“But just a few minutes later the entire place was covered in mobile homes – it was as if they came out of nowhere.
“There have been raised voices and the Gardai have arrived. It’s getting hot and heavy.”
