Protests taking place today in relation to Ireland 2040

A number of protests are taking place in and around IT Sligo today in relation to the Ireland 2040 plan.

The Plan is being launched this afternoon with some members of the public raising issues that they feel are being neglected.

One such group has been set up to save the Post Office in Easkey following the closure of a number in the region.

Orla Cawley, Secretary of the Committee says that rural Ireland is declining now, and something needs to be done.
