Donegal TD calls for urgent supports for fishing industry

A Donegal TD has expressed his shock in relation to what he says was the lack of support for the fisheries and Marine sectors in Budget 2023


Sinn Féin spokesperson on Fisheries and the Marine, Pádraig MacLochlainn says it’s unbelievable that there was no emergency financial aid package to address the unprecedented fuel crisis in the Irish fishing industry.



He says that in recent days, the Irish fishing industry united again to meet the Minister for the Marine, Charlie McConalogue, to appeal for urgent financial support for their fishing communities in crisis.


Calls for help which he says have been ignored by the Irish government.
