Outrage as speed vans operate outside churches during masses

first_imgThe Chairperson of the Joint Policing Committee (JPC) is to write to the correct authorities to recommend that Go Safe Vans refrain from sitting outside churches across Donegal. Sinn Fein’s Gerry McMonagle made the statement yesterday, Monday, in Lifford at Donegal’s JPC meeting when Community Representative, James Trearty, brought up the matter.Mr Trearty said a van had been sitting outside of St Columba’s Church in Termon during a month’s mind for Chairman of Termon GAA Club, Danny O’Donnell, in February. Expressing his annoyance at the situation, Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr Seamus O’Domhnaill, said the issue had also been brought to his attention.He said: “It is not nice for people who go to the church or the cemetery to see the van there and we as a committee need to desist of vans of that nature parking outside a place of worship.“The van was parked in the middle of the car park and it was most insensitive to the visitors of the church, especially during an occasion of a month’s mine,” O’Domhnaill added.The Chairperson of the Donegal Council added that it was time for the JPC to ‘take action’ on the situation at hand and that the appropriate offices should be contacted. Donegal’s Chief Garda Superintendent, Terry McGinn, agreed that the issue could be looked at further.Concluding on the matter, Cllr McMonagle said: “I will look at the issue and it will be dealt with appropriately and I will write to the appropriate officials in due course.”Outrage as speed vans operate outside churches during masses was last modified: April 3rd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CLLR GERRY MCMONAGLEDonegal Joint Policing CommitteeSeamus O’Domhnailllast_img
