Ferris calls on people to care for neighbours
Kerry North/Limerick Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris has called on people to pay extra attention to their neighbours during the current bad weather. He particularly stressed the need for people to ensure that elderly people living on their own are not isolated or in need of food or heating.
Deputy Ferris said:
“One of the heartening aspects of the current weather crisis is that it has brought about an increase in community co-operation. I know that there are many people going out of their way to ensure that elderly people in particular are not left to fend for themselves. People ought to check on their neighbours and on elderly people living in more isolated areas.” ENDS
