Galway Bay fm newsroom – The Taoiseach has pledged action on the issue of Travellers in Galway living in freezing conditions.
It’s after Deputy Eamon O’ Cuiv highlighted restrictions on a new caravan loan scheme introduced by the Government.
He argued it’s unacceptable that the scheme only covers 75 caravans in the entire country – and slammed the Government for its “petty-mindedness”.
Deputy O’ Cuiv outlined how in Galway, 24 replacement caravans are urgently needed – but approval was only given for four.
He says as the temperature plummets, many Travellers are living in freezing caravans and mobile homes that are decades old.
