Irish Water are set to meet with councillors on Thursday in the Dungloe over the ongoing water network issues in the Falcarragh and the wider Cloughaneely area, it has been confirmed.
At the time, Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Seamus O’Domhnaill confirmed to Donegal Daily that funding had been sanctioned for the upgrades and design to commence in the several weeks – with all maintenance to the water supply expected to be complete by October 2019.
However, Micheal Mac Giolla Easbuig has called on the utility company to also meet with businesses and community representatives.
He said: “Cloch Cheannfhaola and An Fál Carrach have been plagued with problems with their water supply for a number of years and I have made representations on their behalf to Irish Water over that period of time.
“In the last six months or so, as the water situation in the area got worse, I asked Irish Water to come to the area to see the conditions for themselves and to talk to the community there to hear how they are affected.
“At long last, Irish Water have agreed to a meeting, but it is to be in Dungloe Thursday the 16th at 10am and the only people invited are the Glenties MD councillors.
“This is not good enough,” he added.
“They need to see for themselves what the water problems are and listen to how this affects the local community.
“I know if this on-going problem was affecting me and my family or business I’d be at this meeting.”Tags:
