Donegal omitted from Government‘s crisis response maps

Donegal does not exist on the maps of the Government‘s crisis response headquarters.

The apparent oversight at the National Emergency Co-ordinating Centre was further proof the country’s second-largest county does not exist in the minds of central policy-makers, senior politicians claimed.

Charts on the walls of the taskforce HQ, two floors up in Dublin’s Agriculture House, show in detail the east, west and south of Ireland, but their is no sign of Donegal.

Donegal TD Joe McHugh said the revelation would be nothing new to the man on the street in Donegal but it would rub salt into their wounds.
