FG and Labour both denied during election campaigning that they would sell any forestry land owned by Coillte. Now today it has been confirmed in the Dáil that the government is to sell over 1100 acres of forest land in Donegal. The total amount of forestry sold in 2012 was 346 hectares nationally. This year the government plans to sell another 440 hectares in Donegal alone.
So another election promise broken but that is normal for the government now.
