Dungloe's main car park off Lower Main Street is unsafe and a health and safety risk after dark it has been claimed.

This is because the lights in the car park are not working and haven't been for sometime.

However, now with darkness falling earlier local Sinn Féin Cllr Marie Therese Gallagher is calling on Donegal County Council who have responsibility for the car park to repair the lights as a matter of urgency.

“There is a problem with the lights and it has been ongoing for sometime,” explained Cllr Gallagher.

“The bottom line is they are not working  and now with the winter coming and the nights getting longer and darker the car park has become unsafe for parking in the evening.

“There may be an issue concerning the lights and it has  to be addressed.

“The current situation is not acceptable because the car park is not only used by visitors it is also used by people working in the town," she said.
