Leitrim County Council have notified Leitrim VEC of their failure to comply with the non closure of a gate at Lough Allen College, Drumkeerin.

Local Councillor Mary Bohan said the notice was “nonsense”. She said for “30 years a gate has been there.”

Martin Fallon, acting CEO said he understands that the gate has always been there and that it is closed. Cllr McGloin said that locals should make an affidavit and send it to the council.

Cllr Bohan said that the person who initiated this “had not fully informed themselves.”
