The first meeting of the South-West Donegal Branch was held on Saturday 5th May 1979 in the Central Hotel, Donegal Town.. Due to the Postal strike taking place at the time, notification of the meeting was by advertisement in the Donegal Democrat. Mr. Bernard Egan, Chairperson of Co. Donegal RTA informed the meeting that at the AGM of the Co Donegal RTA, it was decided to establish four regional areas (branches) in Donegal as the county as a whole was too extensive to be organised as one unit.
The first resolution passed at that meeting was ‘That we the RTA urgently press for the synchronisation of salaries and pensions as lack of parity is causing great hardship to our members.’ Does this sound familiar?
Next Branch Meeting
The summer 2019 branch meeting was held on Tuesday 7th May. Details of the autumn/winter meeting will be posted here as soon as they become available.
