A TULLAMORE councillor vented his anger at the “complete failure” of the Traveller Accommodation programme in the town.

Fine Gael councillor, Tommy McKeigue voiced his concerns about the situation during a recent discussion on the draft review of Traveller Accommodation Programme 2009 - 2013.

Independent councillor, Dervill Dolan, concurred with Cllr McKeigue’s sentiments. “It is unacceptable but it has been going on for a long number of years,” the Tullamore councillor added.
