New group set up to replicate MFG considers complaint to Europe

A new group hoping to replicate MFG's work is considering making a complaint to Europe due to Government delays.

MFG closed suddenly last September with the loss of 130 jobs.

It delivered the LEADER and LCDP funding programmes to the Gaeltacht regions.

Since Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltachta ceased operations last September, there's been a vacuum in gaeltacht areas. Now, a new group called Meitheal Oibre an Iarthair agus na Mí wants to fill that vacuum.

It's made up of representitives of community groups and business people from all Gaeltacht areas from Donegal to Kerry.

Vice Chair of the group Diarmuid Mulcahy says they're not satisfied with Pobail or the Department of the Environment.

He told Radio Kerry they're thinking of making a complaint to Europe.......
