Sinn Fein Councillor says Donegal will face worst cuts to services in the country

Donegal will be the worst hit county in Ireland by cuts to services, according to a Sinn Fein County Cllr.

Just 47% of householders in the county have paid the household tax – so central government is cutting funds to that accord.

Cllr Jack Murray has said the charge is deeply unfair, and that these cuts will undoubtedly lead to more protests....
