A full meeting of Donegal County Council has had to be adjourned after the requisite number of councillors failed to attend.

This morning’s reconvened January meeting of the council was due to start at 9.30am.

But mayor Ian McGarvey was forced to adjourn the meeting for 30 minutes as only eight of the 29 elected members were in the chamber at 10am.

Council rules states the meeting can only commence if a quorum of nine councillors is in the chamber within 30 minutes of the start time.
