People should not be forced to pay for undrinkable water – Doherty

Gary Doherty

A Donegal County Councillor has said that people should not be forced to pay for water that is not suitable to drink.

Cllr Gary Doherty says he has been contacted by dozens of people in the Finn Valley area complaining about their water quality.

He says that Donegal County Council had identified that pipes in the Finn Valley area are antiquated and not fit for purpose and need urgent work, but that's now up in the air with Irish water

Water metres are set to be installed in the Ballybofey area over the next few days, but Cllr Doherty wouldn't go as far as to say that people should stop Irish Water engineers....
