vehicles, redundant machinery and scrap metal in a
bid to create space and raise cash for the local
authority. Donegal County Councilís sale includes
six fire engines, six lorries; six pick-up trucks;

for sale are no longer roadworthy, are obsolete and
are being sold for scrap value. The council carried
out a similar exercise around 2004." The tender
