A LABOUR party member of Castlebar Town Council has made a renewed call for an urgent meeting with Taoiseach Enda Kenny to discuss the spiralling jobs crisis in the county town.
Speaking at a meeting of the authority, Councillor Harry Barrett slammed as unacceptable the fact a cross-party delegation chosen eight months ago had still not been given a date by An Taoiseach’s office for the meeting.
He stated: “It is no secret that the jobs crisis in Castlebar is getting worse by the day and people are demanding that we as councillors do something.
“I had asked, as far back as last September, for an urgent meeting with Deputy Kenny to discuss options for the town.
A cross-party delegation was chosen and we were asked to wait for a date. It is now over eight months on and we still have not been given a date.
