Councillors of the Letterkenny-Milford area have passed a motion calling for signs to alert the public to the dangers of contracting Lyme Disease from ticks.The council will work with the National Parks and Wildlife Service to explore options for placing signage at Glenveagh National Park and local woodlands.The signs are expected to be proposed countywide after Letterkenny-Milford Municipal District Mayor John O’Donnell raised the matter with the local authority on Tuesday. Cllr O’Donnell said that many local Lyme Disease sufferers brought the issue to his attention.Lyme disease is a debilitating bacterial infection that is spread to humans by infected ticks. Not every tick carries Lyme, but it is estimated that 6-10% of the insects are carriers.Cllr O’Donnell said that awareness of the illness is growing as more people get diagnosed. However, those who can afford to Germany for specific diagnoses are facing significant challenges as their results are often not recognised by Irish doctors.Cllr O’Donnell welcomed the response from the council as they plan to contact the National Parks and Wildlife Service under the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

The Supreme Court will on Friday hear Maharashtra MLC Dhananjay Munde’s petition challenging a Bombay High Court order directing registration of an FIR against him in a case of an alleged illegal purchase of government land.The NPC leader, in his petition, has sought stay of the High Court order that directed the police to file a case against him for alleged grabbing of a government land at village Pus, Taluka Ambajogai, Beed district.The High Court had directed the police to register the case on the basis of a complaint made by one Rajabhau Phad on October 23, 2017 at Bardapur police station.The public prosecutor had told the High Court that after making some inquiry, the police realised that the government land was being grabbed by creating false revenue record and by showing some transactions.“Even when such opinion is formed by investigating agency, the complaint given to P.I. of Bardapur police station, Tahsil Ambajogai is not treated as FIR and crime is not registered,” the High Court had remarked.Mr. Munde, who is the opposition leader of the Maharashtra Legislative Council, has alleged in his plea before the top court that the “facts alleged by Respondent No. 5 [Mr. Rajabhau] are politically motivated” and on the behest of his political rivals.
