Donegal council budget agreed on casting vote

Donegal's county councillors have voted to accept a council budget for 2014.

Fourteen Fine Gael, Labour and the Independent councillors introduced a new agreement proposal to support the budget with some adjustments.

However, fourteen Sinn Fein and Fianna Fail councillors voted against it.

Letterkenny councillor and Mayor of Donegal Ian McGarvey, who is an Independent, used his casting vote and the budget was passed.

The 29 councillors in Donegal were set to be fired if they failed to reach agreement by midnight tonight.
