Members of traveller community to protest outside Sligo County Council this morning

Members of the Traveller Community will hold a silent protest outside Sligo County Council this morning.

It’s to coincide with a planning application coming before Sligo County Councillors regarding the Glenview Halting site on Ash Lane..

Councillors will be asked today to consider the plan to divide the site in 2, renovate 6 halting bays and create a new entrance there.

Sligo County Council have not confirmed who would eventually move into the site but it’s claimed the plan is for the McGinley family from Connaughton road carpark to move there.

Marie McGinley told Ocean FM News what they planned to do at today’s meeting
