New York, New York so good they . . . want to go for free!
AN INISHOWEN councillor has objected to Donegal County Council sending four of its’ officials to New York for St. Patrick’s Day in six weeks time.
Burnfoot councillor Jack Murray was the only councillor to speak against the proposal to send the representatives to the States at the monthly meeting of the Council in Lifford in Monday.
It was proposed that the Mayor, Ian McGarvey, Deputy Mayor, Michael McBride, the County Manager, Seamus Neeley, and another Council Official would travel to New York to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
Cllr. Murray said he didn’t see any merit in sending the officials at this time of the year. He said he didn’t object to sending a Mayor to America but that he felt there were “more opportune” times to send them such as for the Golden Bridges conference in Boston.
