Tipperary TD Cahill Out Of Touch On Covid-19 Issues

Jackie Cahill TD

The Cabinet sub-committee on Covid-19 is meeting via video link today to discuss the recent hike in covid-19 new cases, with the spread of the virus in meat plants expected to be high on their agenda.

The acting Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ronan Glynn will brief the Government with an update on the progression of Covid-19 within Ireland, in light of lock-down measures introduced over the weekend, relating to counties Kildare, Laois and Offaly, where 4 meat factories have now been requested to close their processing plants.

The Cabinet sub-committee meeting comes about on a morning when one ‘out of touch’ Tipperary Fianna Fáil member of Dáil Éireann, Mr Jackie Cahill TD goes on local radio to voice his criticism on the delay in opening a meat plant in Banaher, Co. Offaly, latter a county already currently forced into lock-down.

His out of touch and frowned on remarks by his own party, also comes about as the European Centre for Disease Control suggests that Ireland be urged to consider reinforcing lock-down restrictions; together with a number of other European countries, following a major resurgence in our coronavirus cases.

The disease watchdog says the levels of risk in Ireland will rise to ‘very high’, if restrictions aren’t brought in yet again.
