A councillor has expressed his anger over social houses in Bagenalstown being given to "outsiders". 

Cllr Arthur McDonald raised the issue at a recent meeting of Bagenalstown Municipal District when he mentioned a recent allocation of social houses in the area where four were given to residents of the town and "five to outsiders". 

He added that somebody from Tullow or Ballinabranna getting a social house in Bagenalstown is "hard to explain on the frontline".
