Donegal County Councillors met in unusual circumstances today for their first plenary meeting since January.
Eleven of the 37 elected members gathered for a scaled-back meeting in the Lifford Council building. Social distancing was carried out with councillors seated 2m apart and other members and media tuning in via a webstream.
Meetings had been put on hold for three months due to the outbreak of Covid-19 and restrictions on gatherings. Members were called today for statutory business to make decisions on key roads and development projects. No motions or questions were raised.
Cathaoirleach Nicholas Crossan acknowledged that it was an unusual meeting and commented it was good to see everybody back and to have a small bit of normality.
