More face masks could be made in Donegal – Sweeney

There are calls for a concerted effort to manufacture face masks in Donegal, possibly using the facilities of closed factories in the county.

Donegal Aontu representative Mary T Sweeney says at the weekend, a number of consultants said the specifications for face masks should be published so they can be made locally, and she believes that could be done in a coordinated way.

She wants Donegal County Council, the IDA and former staff with the relevant skills to assess if any existing facilities could be safely used for the manufacture of masks...........
