Cllr Sean McDermott put forward a motion calling on the Council to support this project, however he was told that there was nothing in the budget for 2014. Cllr McDermott asked the Council to speak with Mr McCann to see if some support could be provided noting this would be a wonderful opportunity to promote Co Leitrim.
