CCTV may be necessary to protect Swilly lifebelts

A Letterkenny based councillor says CCTV may have to be considered as a deterrent after another life belt was removed from the pedestrian bridge over the Swilly at Oldtown.

It comes just weeks after a similar incident, which was widely condemned.

Cllr Gerry Mc Monagle says on that occasion, members of the 3 Rivers Search and Rescue Team went in to the river to retrieve it.

He says this cannot be allowed to happen again……..
