SF call on Slowey to resign council seat

Sinn Fein's whip on Donegal County Council has called on FG Cllr Terence Slowey to resign.  Cllr Mick Quinn made the call, saying while everyone on council holds Cllr Slowey in high regard, his double expenses claim has brought the council into disrepute at a time when politics is at a very low ebb.

In his opening comments to council during a debate on the Standards in Public Office commission hearing into his case, Cllr Slowey reiterated that he had made a mistake which he immediately sought to rectify when he became aware of it.

He indicated it is his wish to continue to represent the people of the Glenties Electoral Area.
