Donegal council meeting to discuss SIPO report on Cllr John O Donnell

County councillors in Donegal are holding a special meeting this morning (10am) to discuss a report from the Standards in Public Office Commission about one of the council members.

A SIPO investigation found that Independent Councillor John O’Donnell breached the Code of Conduct for councillors when he appeared on a secretly filmed RTE Investigates programme in 2015.

Cllr O Donnell has denied any wrongdoing.

This morning’s council meeting was called by Cathaoirleach Seamus Ó’Domhnaill following requests from Sinn Fein and Cllr Frank McBrearty.
