Cllr Doherty says major opportunity to create jobs in Carndonagh being delayed

An Inishowen Councillor says a major opportunity to provide jobs in Carndonagh is being delayed because a planning application has been held up for six months.

The application for a development in the town centre was lodged in December of last year, but still hasn't been ruled on.

Over the weekend it was announced that 15 jobs were going in the town with the closure of a local supermarket.

Cllr Albert Doherty says the town now needs new jobs more than ever, saying that he believes this project should be given the go-ahead immediately...........
