* AILG ANNUAL CONFERENCE TO ADDRESS RURAL DECLINE
‘Renewal’ will be the central theme of this year’s AILG Conference, which takes place on 5-6 May at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel, Buncrana, Co. Donegal.
The issue of urban dereliction and rural decline, which are of significant concern to urban and rural councillors, will top the agenda at this year’s conference.
And no doubt the recent calls by AILG on behalf of all councillors for a major pay rise will also be discussed, now more so than ever in light of the proposed review of the local government reforms by the Department of the Environment.
