Calls for seminar to be held in Buncrana to tackle jobs crisis

There are calls for a seminar or conference on job creation to be held in Buncrana.

Earlier this year, the previous Mayor of Donegal, Cora Harvey hosted a similar event called "Making the Future Happen: Addressing the Unemployment Challenge in Donegal.

The conference was  focused on motivating and inspiring businesses and the agencies responsible for job creation in the county with examples of best practice from other parts of Ireland.

Now Buncrana Cllr Ciaran McLaughlin wants a similar event for Buncrana.

One in three workers are currently unemployed in Buncrana and over 5000 are out of full time employment across Inishowen.
