Cllr Larkin doesn’t believe safety barrier will be erected between roundabouts

Letterkenny Councillor Dessie Larkin says he doesn't believe the executive of Donegal Council will now proceed with proposed works on the outskirts of Letterkenny, even though they would be within their rights to do so.
