Arrest of Deputy Daly unnecessary- Louise O’Reilly
Fingal Sinn Féin General Election candidate Louise O’Reilly has expressed concern at the arrest of Clare Daly TD over non-payment of a fine related to Shannon Airport.
O Reilly said:
“Clare Daly TD and Deputy Mick Wallace along with my Sinn Féin colleagues have raised questions in the Dáil concerning US military planes landing in Shannon, and Deputy Daly is now imprisoned for the non-payment of a fine after they were found to have entered a restricted zone in Shannon Airport, while attempting to inspect two US military aircraft.”
“Clare Daly should be released immediately.
“These planes were helping the US in the Middle East and their presence in Shannon Airport was a clear violation of Irish neutrality policy.”
