Two protests in Donegal this afternoon

Two protests are planned today against new government taxes and charges and changes to school transport in Donegal.

The protests are scheduled for this afternoon.

Hundreds are expected at a major rally against the introduction of the €100 Household charge will take place in Letterkenny this afternoon.

The protest will coincide with a national protest which will take place in the capital.

People are being urged to gather at the Station Round about before 3pm.

Meanwhile, Parents and teachers in the Finn Valley area are encouraged to attend a protest march later against changes to the boundary lines for school transport.

As a result of the changes, students will only be able to get a free bus ticket if they attend the nearest post-primary school.

The protest walk will begin at 2 o clock from Navenney Car Park in Ballybofey this afternoon.

Parents, children and teachers will then make their way to Stranaorlar.
