Residents at Ballyshannon Estate live in fear, other's party on.

Residents at Ballyshannon's Lawne Park have been complaining about "anti-social" behaviour that has many people living in fear and distress.

... Alleged late-night parties, loud music, vandalism, threats and intimidating behaviour have all been cited as major problems, with residents in the estate saying they are living in fear.

One resident, who did not wish to be named, said her Christmas was effectively ruined due to a number of anti-social incidents with the noise outside her home "unbelievable".

The woman's young daughter had undergone a hospital procedure but had been unable to get sleep due to the on-going racket.

Another person, who is a relative of a Lawne Park resident, today said she has been unable to visit the family member's home in almost a month; the problem has become so bad.

The woman also alleged that the family has endured assualts, verbal abuse and even had their lives threatened on one occasion.

Efforts are now being made to secure a meeting between residents, Donegal County Council and the Gardai on the issue which residents say has been on-going for quite some time.
