A new footpath has been put in place in Creeslough village to connect residents around the cordon at the explosion scene.
Since the fatal explosion on Friday 7th September, residents of the Birch Hill side of Creeslough have been unable to access the main street.
The Creeslough View reports that a new temporary footpath was put in place on Saturday by local contractors and local voluntary workers. Materials were supplied by Donegal County Council.
The footpath links Upper Birch Hill to Creeslough High street.
Locals have been praised for their work on the project.
A High Court order is in place to preserve the scene of the Creeslough tragedy for another week.
