New government accused of failing to prioritise rural Ireland

A Sligo Leitrim TD has accused the government of neither being genuine or enthusiastic about developing rural Ireland.


Local Sinn Fein TD Martin Kenny says the lack of ministers from the local region shows those living in rural Ireland just how big of a priority they are in the eyes of the new government.


Deputy Kenny says the move to not to retain the department of Rural and Community Development is another major blow to the rural Ireland.
