Mac Giolla Easbuig has demanded that McGinley, the Minister of State for Gaeltacht Affairs, hold a public meeting to explain his actions to the people of Gweedore, Gortahork, Falcarragh, the Rossesand the wider constituency.
Mac Giolla Easbuig said ‘At a time when this community is suffering from mass unemployment, mass emigration and ever increasing poverty levels, Dinny McGinley must explain why he supports a budget that will add further injury to communities and cripple the most vulnerable in our society.'
‘It is totally unacceptable for an elected representative of the people to support a budget which acts against the interests of those same people. I am calling for McGinley to hold a public meeting, where he can put his case before our community in a public forum and be held accountable. I would further call for him not to hide behind radio interviews, as has been the case in the past.’
Mac Giolla Easbuig concluded: ‘Now is the time for the people of this area to make their anger heard and to demand that McGinley explain why he has voted to pay faceless bondholders and private banks in place of defending the interests of the communities he has been elected to represent.'
