There is anger in Inishowen after a meeting  was told this evening of plans to cut day service supports to persons with special needs and their families in Inishowen from five days down to three at centres in Buncrana, Carndonagh and Moville.

During the meeting in the Cashel na Cor Centre in  Buncrana, families were informed of the proposed cuts to services.

Reacting Councillor Rena Donaghey said there was extreme anger at the proposals which would be resisted.
