One of Donegal’s darkest days – MacLochlainn

12 July, 2010

Speaking after the deaths of eight men in a road accident in Donegal last night the Mayor of Buncrana and Deputy Mayor of Donegal, Sinn Féin’s Councillor Padraig MacLochlainn, has conveyed a sense of shock across the Inishowen peninsula.

Councillor MacLochlainn said, “Once again the community here in Inishowen has been devastated by a road accident. This is truly one of Donegal’s darkest days.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who lost their lives and the family of the young man who is fighting for his life.

“This tragedy is a stark reminder for all to pay head to road safety programmes and the plethora of road safety advertisements and education programmes. There must be a change in culture in terms of road safety.” ENDS
