North West MEP calls for safeguards for those in financial distress

A North West/Midlands MEP attending yesterday’s eviction protest in County Roscommon says the story has moved beyond last week’s headlines.

More than a thousand people joined the demonstration in Strokestown calling for an end to forced evictions – and support for people all around the country who are struggling this Christmas.

Sinn Fein’s, Matt Carthy, says it’s time safeguards were put in place for people in financial distress.
