McKillop: Glens have been frozen out
“Understandably the main roads must have priority but better preparation could have been made for the supply of grit at hills and bends where it is absolutely essential.
“In any emergency, communication is essential but despite umpteen calls on Sunday, I was unable to speak to someone who might have arranged the supply of grit to keep our rural community moving.
“It may seem simple to ask rural people to stay off the roads but farms need to get milk off the premises and receive supplies of animal foods. Children need to go to school and our shops need fresh stock.”
