Ballyshannon Town Councillor Brendan Travers has been appointed Peace Commissioner by Minister for Justice and Defence.
Cllr. Travers got news of the honour this week.
He told the Donegal Democrat: “I believe that there was the demand for another Peace Commissioner in the town. There were a number of Peace Commissioners who passed away in recent years - Jim Keane and Gerry McNamara, both from The Rock - among them.”
He added: “I am quite proud to have been appointed Peace Commissioner. I see it as an extension of my role as town councillor.”
