Labour to name new councillors shortly

Senator Jimmy Harte says he expects to have replacements in place on both Donegal County Council and Letterkenny Town Council within a month.

Last night, he went to a meeting of Letterkenny Town Council to formally confirm his resignation and commit himself to supporting the council in the Seanad.

He confirmed to Highland Radio News that discussions are ongoing both locally and nationally, and he expects the new councillors to be chosen very shortly.

He says it was important to him to go back to the chamber one last time..........
