Protect Rural Services
The current and last government have gone about systematically attacking rural Ireland and family farmers over the past four years. With Garda station closures, farm assist cuts and small schools under threat, rural Ireland has been singled out by the government for cutbacks across a number of areas. The government’s decisions are ultimately damaging the attraction of living and working in rural areas.
Fianna Fáil remains firmly committed in government to introduce a community services guarantee that will ensure specific targets on the availability of schools, health services, sports and recreational facilities, as well as public transport.
