Cllr. John Meehan (FG) has accused Cllr. John Campbell (Ind.) of “playing political games” over gratuity payments to town councillors.

Cllr. Campbell had claimed that town councillors in Donegal could be set to receive payments of up to €15,000 next year, when the councils are abolished.

Cllr. Meehan took issue with the figures, which he said would apply in big cities like Dublin.

He then issued a personal challenge to Cllr. Campbell.
