Dunkineely Community Alert
Dunkineely Community Alert held a meeting at the DCL offices on Wednesday evening (09.12.15); the meeting was chaired by former Councillor John Boyle and there were there were 22 people in attendance including Councillor Niamh Kennedy and Garda Niall Burke.
It was resolved to set up a Text Alert System, and that Mrs Vera McCafferty would be the coordinator. Once the necessary ground work has been carried out, notices will appear in the press, and on facebook, etc, to inform you as to how you can get involved in this very worthwhile project, and help to make our community a safer place for all concerned.
It is proposed that the Text Alert system will be set up according to Muintir Na Tíre guidelines; for more information, check out their website.
