The Minister for Environment, Community and Local Government has been heavily criticised for failing to resolve funding issues facing the Doe Community Association/ Cresslough Tidy Towns Committee.
With the assistance of Donegal County Council and the approval of  LEADER Grant Funding by DLDC, the group’s Creeslough Enhancement Project was completed last year at a cost of 400 thousand euro.
However, due to a difficulty with a technical aspect of the tendering process the project was deemed retrospectively ineligible for the €372,000 LEADER funding by Minister Phil Hogan’s Department.
Deputy Pearse Doherty says the group is now facing the threat of legal action as well as huge financial and emotional costs.
He says he is disgusted by Minister Phil Hogan’s inaction on the issue:
