I spoke on The Tonight Show immediately following tonight’s Dáil vote on the legislation around reopening indoor hospitality.
The proposed legislation on indoor hospitality is being rammed through the Dáil without proper debate. It sets our country on a slippery slope towards similar discrimination being extended to other aspects of society.
It becomes clearer that this is a coercive rather than protective measure. It also becomes more arbitrary in its discrimination.
Speaking on Clare FM I said important details still need to be ironed out in relation to the proposed transfer of Shannon Heritage sites to Clare County Council.
Calls are being made for a government commitment to short-term funding for the sites and for the council to stipulate that future coach contracts to tourist attraction would require an overnight stay in the county.
