Labour Party Press Release on Health March

Press Release By the Donegal Labour Party
04th August 2010

I attended the meeting tonight in Letterkenny and was impressed by the unity and focus of the group.

The Donegal Labour party represented by Cllr Frank McBrearty Jnr, Cllr Jimmy Harte and Cllr Martin Farren met with union officials from IMPACT, SIPTU and community groups from all over the county on Wednesday evening. The sole purpose of this meeting was to discuss what help and support the Labour party can give to the campaign to retain Jobs and services in the HSE, in order that the people of Donegal can have the health care that they are entitled too.

We asked the group what help we could give in order to try and retain Jobs and services. The clear message coming from the campaign organisers were that they wanted all the people of Donegal to unite and that they did not want to make the campaign political in any way. We gave the group an undertaking that we would fully support their calls and that the Labour party would support them in any way they could.

The Labour party is calling on the people of Donegal to come along to a rally on Saturday 7th Aug in Letterkenny, leaving Tesco’s roundabout at 12pm to support the campaign group “Save Donegal Health services” in order to give a clear message to government that the people of Donegal are united in this campaign.
