Dublin mindset of Shane Ross does little for North West youth


A Leitrim Councillor is describing as ‘anti rural’ the suggestion put forward by the former Minister for Transport Shane Ross to ban young people from driving at night.


The former Minister says such a move would help to save lives on the nations roads.


Leitrim Councillor Padraig Fallon says such a move would discriminate against young people who have secured a driving licence and need transport for traveling to and from work or College.


The Sinn Fein Councillor says the remarks show the Dublin mind-set and how out of touch Shane Ross is with life in rural Ireland.
