Councillor says too much work is done behind closed doors

A Donegal County Councillor says that too much of the local authority's business is conducted behind closed.

Councillor Patrick McGowen says that all too often when an issue is raised in the chamber, rather than discuss it their and then, it is put off to a workshop. These are often held behind closed doors and in the absence of the local media.

Councillor McGowen says this is undemocratic and change is needed.
