‘Solidarity’ event at Connaughton Rd Car Park for McGinley family

A spokesperson for The Traveller Community says he has organised what he describes as a ‘stand of solidarity’ for a family living in Connaughton Road Car Park in Sligo Town today.

The McGinley family have been living in the public car park for over 30 years.

Members of the public are being invited to the car park at this afternoon to meet with members of the McGinley family.

Bernard Sweeney says the family desperately need alternative accommodation and people need to see that.
