MEP Anderson meets Donegal County Council chief Neely to discuss Brexit

first_imgSINN Féin MEP Martina Anderson has today met with the chief executives Donegal County Council and Derry and Strabane District Council in Brussels to discuss the implications of Brexit.There are fears that EU chiefs will insist that the Irish government impose a hard border between Donegal and Derry over the movement of goods and people.Martina Anderson said: “There is no doubt that the Tory Brexit agenda is disastrous for Ireland and that its impact will be particularly felt in border areas. “Today in Brussels I met with the Chief Executives of Derry and Strabane District Council and Donegal Council Council, John Kelpie and Seamus Neely, to discuss the impact of Brexit.“There is clear concern over Brexit, particularly in areas such as Derry and Donegal.“I updated the chief executives on the work of the Sinn Féin team in Europe in highlighting the impact of Brexit on Ireland and on building support for the north to secure designated special status within the EU.“We will continue to engage with the chief executives of both councils as we continue to work to secure special status within the EU for the north,” added the Sinn Fein MEP.

McCONALOGUE SLAMS GOVERNMENT AFTER DONEGAL ROAD FUNDING SLASHED

first_imgDeputy Charlie McConalogue has condemned the dramatic reduction in funding for road works in Co Donegal this year, describing it as ‘yet another example of the Government’s disregard for the needs of Donegal communities’.Charlie McConalogue TDThe Fianna Fáil Deputy was commenting on the news that Donegal County Council will receive less than €9.5 million this year for road projects. That’s down by over €10 million from Donegal’s allocation of €19.5 million in 2011.“Once again Donegal has lost out on its fair share of central funding for vital infrastructure projects. The further reduction in funding for road projects in Donegal this year means we are down €2 million on last year. That’s €12 million less than the allocation in 2012 and €10 million less than the allocation in 2011,” explained Deputy McConalogue. The Inishowen Deputy said irony is that Donegal is in greater need of investment in transport infrastructure than most other counties in this country.“As if it wasn’t enough that the funding commitments to the crucial A5 Derry to Aughnacloy project were revoked due to a lack of political will, other smaller but important road projects here will now go undone this year because Donegal County Council has not been given a fair allocation of central funding.“Why is it that Donegal is consistently expected to bear the brunt of cuts to local services and supports? We have seen a raft of cuts to our community services over the past three years – the closure of local garda stations, cuts to local health services, funding cuts for schools, the threatened closure of small schools, small businesses forced to shut down because they cannot get the support they need. Meanwhile, there has been a dramatic reduction in IDA visits to Donegal over the past two years while other regions have benefited from increased IDA support.“Donegal seems to be on the wrong end of a two-tier recovery in this country. We hear about a recovery in Dublin, but there are less jobs, less services and less supports in Donegal. People and communities are suffering. The Government’s treatment of Donegal communities has been appalling. We need to start seeing the Government representatives in Donegal stand up for this county and ensure that it gets its fair share of investment.”  McCONALOGUE SLAMS GOVERNMENT AFTER DONEGAL ROAD FUNDING SLASHED was last modified: January 8th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Charlie McConaloguedonegalroad fundinglast_img read more
