LETTERKENNY Chamber met with Donegal TDs to discuss the main issues impacting businesses throughout the county.
Chamber Council members had meetings with Minister Charlie McConalogue TD, Thomas Pringle TD, Pearse Doherty TD and his colleague Padraig MacLochlainn TD – and Joe McHugh TD.
This was an opportunity to put forward the views of Letterkenny Chamber’s 300 members directly to the TDs.
Led by Chamber President, Fionnuala Rabbitt, the delegates briefed the TDs on key issues that reflect members views – namely transport, infrastructure, housing, skills and talent.
Chamber President, Fionnuala Rabbitt explained the rationale behind the visit: “Our role in Letterkenny Chamber is to lobby and advocate for our members.
“In recent surveys members have consistently told us about the issues and concerns that impact them on an ongoing basis.
“We felt it was time to go directly to our TDs to reinforce the message.
“The delegation put forward the views of our members on a range of issues.
“As well as Housing and Infrastructure there were discussions around Skills, Hospitality and Tourism and lack of Gardaí leading to anti-social behaviour that is on the increase in our towns and villages,” said Ms Rabbitt.
