Greencastle project could lead to litigation

The government and Donegal County Council could be on a legal collision course after it emerged that work on the Greencastle Harbour Project will cease before the month's end.

Notice will be served to staff employed on the project from next week and now questions are being asked as to who is liable for the site in the event of an accident or claim.

A cross party delegation of councillors will travel to meet with the department responsible in a last ditch attempt to get the government to reverse its decision to abandon the 32 million euro project.

To date just 8.2 million euro has been spent, five of which on a breakwater which may literally wash away.
