Sinn Féin Councillor Gary Doherty has welcomed the re-opening of a road in the Doneyloop area which had become so bad with potholes that it had become unfit for use. The road connects the Drumdoit area with the Fearn border with Tyrone.

Cllr Doherty said: “I am delighted that Donegal County Council have begun works to re-surface this road. I am satisfied that representations made by Pearse Doherty and myself have been listened to, and the Council have taken into account the views and wishes of the local people who have long waited for this road to be re-opened.”

He continued: “This stretch of road is vital for the people living in the upper Drumdoit area, as it is a link road which provides access to Castlederg and Clady and eliminates the need for residents to take long detours to facilitate journeys, particularly for those who work and shop in Castlederg. I applaud Donegal County Council for their action.”
