A fence is to be erected around Gartan Field in Letterkenny in a bid to curb anti-social behaviour in the area.
The Town Council has agreed to provide access to local residents through two locked gates, while the right of way in the area will be respected with another set of gates which will be open.
Members were told that the field is regularly covered with glass after weekend drinking parties, and local people are intimidated and disturbed.
The council also heard a call for gardai to become more proactive in tackling this issue, particularly through more stringent enforcement of the council's on-street drinking by-laws.
The issue was raised by Cllr Gerry Mc Monagle
