Hogan hosts Lowry but refuses to meet Priory Hall residents" - Cllr.Micheal Mac Donncha
Sinn Fein Cllr. Micheal Mac Donncha has accused Minister Phil Hogan of double standards after it was revealed that he hosted disgraced TD Michael Lowry and a business delegation just days after the publication of the Moriarty Tribunal. Cllr. Mac Donncha said:
"Minister Hogan is guilty of gross double standards. This is the Minister who doggedly refuses to meet the residents of Priory Hall who have been put through a terrible ordeal because of scandalous neglect by developers, the local authority and the State. Yet a few days after the publication of the Moriarty Report Minister Hogan hosted Deputy Lowry and a business delegation in his Customs House office.
"The evacuated Priory Hall residents have had to picket the Dail, to march and demonstrate to highlight their case and demand justice while Minister Hogan treats them with disdain. If he can facilitate Michael Lowry why can't he meet citizens who have been so badly wronged and who need Government intervention to address their plight?"
