Donegal Cllr opposed to allowing people buy their council houses

housingA Donegal councillor says he is opposed to allowing people buy their council houses, believing that it is akin to the sale of state assets.

Glenties area Cllr Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig was speaking following a recent meeting of the Glenties Municipal District, at which the sdale of houses locally was discussed.

A majority of members was in favour of the move, and the proposal now goes before the next council meeting in Lifford for ratification.

However, Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig says his position remains the same, and if the opportunity arises, he will challenge this in the full council chamber........
