A safety warning has been issued after two incidents in which lorries collided with Christmas lights in Donegal Town.
The warning was issued to the drivers of lorries, HGVs and buses by Donegal Town Chamber.
A statement from the Chamber said “We realise that this is an extremely busy time of year and are aware of the difficulties faced by lorry drivers in all our towns and villages with ongoing deliveries pickups etc.
“Unfortunately we have had two instances over the weekend where our overhead Christmas Lights display strings have been damaged by large vehicles passing through.
“As these are erected by a voluntary committee and volunteers, we are asking the drivers of large vehicles to be extra vigilant of our overhead lights when passing through and where possible to avoid the Town Centre as obviously these damages will incur extra costs.
“We depend on the generosity of the Business Community of Donegal Town for their financial support in lighting up the town.”
Meanwhile, the official annual Switch on will take place this Thursday 28th of November at 7.00pm on the Diamond.Tags:
