A public meeting has been arranged to set up a Community Text Alert in the Ballybofey and Stranorlar area.

The meeting will take place at 8pm tonight in the Finn Valley Centre.

The move comes after text alerts were already established in the Convoy, Drumkeen, Castlefinn and Killygordon catchment areas.

Senior Garda representatives, Inspector Michael Harrision and Sergeant McGrath will be in attendance as well as a national text alert organisation Muintir na Tíre.

The meeting was organised by Cllr Patrick McGowan, who will also be there to explain how the community text alert scheme works and to take questions.
