CUTS START TO BITE AS JOBS LOST IN DUNGLOE, THOUGH HOPES THEY CAN BE SAVED

first_imgCUTBACKS are starting to hit rural communities with the news today that two jobs will be lost and up to twenty families affected by the closure of the afterschools service in Dungloe today.The service on the Gaoth Dobhair road has been a vital service for families in the town for five years, and was providing afterschool care to pupils from the Dungloe school area and other parts of the Rosses.The service was run by the Dungloe based Rosses Community Development Project through funding from state body Pobal. However the CDP has told staff and families they can no longer fund the service.CDP chair Mary McHugh said today that she was hopeful that it could be re-opened in a few weeks.“We are seeking more funding. We are closed from today but if we can get support we hope to be up and running again in a few weeks,” she said.CUTS START TO BITE AS JOBS LOST IN DUNGLOE, THOUGH HOPES THEY CAN BE SAVED was last modified: February 25th, 2011 by gregShare 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)last_img
