Donegal a priority for salt – NRA

The NRA says Donegal is one of the six counties which will be prioritised when fresh salt supplies arrive in the country this week.

Speaking after a meeting of the goverment's emergency taskforce, Sean O'Neill from the National Roads Authority said national supplies of salt were down to 10,000 tonnes, with 2,000 tonnes a day being used.

He said the Authority is now confident that the new shipments at sea would begin arriving into Cork and Belfast around Wednesday.

He said the priority counties now are Donegal, Cavan, Monaghan Roscommon, Kerry and Cork.
