Donegal councillor warns that there will be a fatality

The crossroads in Falcarragh.

A councillor has warned that a fatality will take place in a Falcarragh housing estate if action is not taken to counteract motorists speeding around the area.
Fianna Fáil Councillor Séamus Ó'Domhnaill was speaking at a meeting of the Glenties Municipal District on Tuesday afternoon.
Cllr. Ó'Domhnaill said that vehicle drivers were not adhering to the speed limit in a housing estate in Ballina.
“I am putting Donegal County Council on formal notice. There will be a fatality there,” he said.
He said that on a recent occasion a girl would have been knocked down if it were not for a neighbour 'taking the brunt of the force' a week and a half ago.
He was informed that the matter will be investigated by Donegal County Council.
