Garda probe into Nephin Valley water scheme ORLA HEARNS
AN Garda Síochána has confirmed that it is carrying out enquiries into a report received of an incident concerning the Nephin Valley Group Water Scheme.

The distribution of alleged manipulated recordings of meetings of the Board of the Scheme caused uproar at the AGM of Nephin Valley Group Water Scheme Cooperative Society Ltd last Thursday night, March 31. The controversial recordings were circulated anonymously on CD to multiple residents in advance of the AGM, which attracted a capacity crowd to Lahardane Community Centre. A member of An Garda Síochána was also in attendance at the meeting where many members of the public expressed great anger and concern about the content of the CD and questioned the manner in which the Group Water Scheme is being administered.

Members of the Board stated at the AGM that the recordings of their meetings had been obtained by illegal means and had been manipulated. They condemned the “malicious actions, threats and innuendo” that they had been subjected to as a result and said the matter had now been placed in the hands of the gardaí.
