Cllr Gerry Dolan has revealed that a car had to be recovered after it slipped into the water on Saturday last at Cormongan Pier. Fortunately the driver escaped injury.
He was speaking at the March meeting of Ballinamore Municipal meeting when he raised the issue of safety at the pier.
He added two ambulances were called to the scene of what he described as "a near fatal accident."
He suggested a pillar be inserted which could be removed by anyone who wishes to use the amenity for boating.
