Councillors to help community in Churchill pay for independent water analysis

Michael McBride

A cross party group of six local councillors are chipping in to pay the bill for an independent laboratory to carry out tests on water in the Churchill and Glenswilly area outside Letterkenny.

Frustrated residents and businesses are fed up with the discoloured nature of their water, and many have concerns about whether it is safe to drink.

Now, following a local meeting in McClafferty’s Bar in Churchill, independent analysis of the water is being sought.

Cllrs. Ciaran Brogan, Jimmy Kavanagh, Mick Quinn, Michael McBride, James Pat McDaid, Dessie Shiels are supporting the independent testing.

Cllr Michael Mc Bride is Mayor of the Letterkenny Municipal District - He's been outlining why he and his colleagues made this decision............
