Fears that new Finn Valley College may not open in time

It's feared that an alleged dispute between the main contractor and a sub contractor may compromise plans to open the new Finn valley College in two weeks time.

After a 30 year wait, the new school in Stranorlar is now substantially fnished, but the fear is that electrical work may not be certified, and the college cannot open until that happens.

He says he's talking to both sides in a bid to have the situation resolved.............
