People have taken to social media to express their anger.One poster said “Where the hell are Donegal County Council today? Is there no snow plan for Donegal? It’s a joke.”There are also serious delays in many parts of the county with Meenaroy impassable.Pupils at Ballinamore Secondary School were forced to stay indoors when buses coming towards Letterkenny could not pass over Meenaroy.There are also huge tailbacks on Barnesmore Gap with a number of vehicles including a Blood Transfusion van becoming stuck in heavy snow.
