THE DONEGAL County Board has tonight confirmed that €17,800 was stolen from its bank account during the summer.
An official said thieves had hacked into the Board’s details and transferred the money into an account in England.
The money was then withdrawn from the English account.
The incident is believed to have happened in early August and an investigation involving both Gardai in Letterkenny and police in Reading has been under way “for some time.”
It’s not clear if the Bank of Ireland is liable for the transfer.
