More councillors, and others, face bar from public office

Recently, while noting the decision by the Local Government Auditor[LGA] that serving and former councillors on Fermanagh District Council were guilty of wilful misconduct and faced being barred from public office, I noted that there had not been an update on a similar case involving Newry and Mourne councillors.. That update is now in. The LGA has upheld the complaint and the councillors have 14 days to appeal. Otherwise it’s a £10,000 surcharge and barred from public office for 5 years.. among those affected is SF MLA Davy Hyland.
