The uncertain fate of rural transport

5 November 2009

Proposals under the McCarthy report to cut rural transport must be totally opposed says Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris. The Rural Transport programme was designed to meet the transport needs of the most isolated people from as far apart as North Donegal to County Kerry. Speaking to An Phoblacht the Kerry TD said "Sinn Féin is absolutely and totally opposed to any cuts in rural transport. Rural transport is so important for connectivity, particularly for people living in isolated areas and totally dependant on rural transport." The cut proposed by McCarthy would save a mere €11 million. Free article

"LOSS of an Irish great" was how The Irish Post described the deeply sad news of the death of Redmond O'Neill, who died during surgery on 21 October following a three-year-long battle against cancer.
