There is little or no possibility of any flexibility in terms of additional resources.”Cllr Ciaran Brogan of Fianna Fail insisted: “We can’t fool ourselves that anything is going to change but if there is a window then we should look at it.”Fianna Fail, Fine Gael, Labour and independents voted to return to have yet another meeting.Liam Ward told councillors: “The council has resolved to adjourn this meeting to Monday January 13 at 11am.” However the move appears to be just a stay of execution – and our dissolved council could be run from Dublin within days. COUNCIL UPDATE: CRISIS-HIT DONEGAL COUNCIL TO MEET YET AGAIN IN LAST DITCH ATTEMPT TO SAVE BODY was last modified: January 8th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:deadline dayDonegal County CouncilJaniuary 13meetinglast_img read more
