Sinn Féin Dublin Spokesperson on Economic Development, Councillor Daithí Doolan, has today, "welcomed Dublin City Council's call to Minister Noel Ahern to continue funding the Community Worker's Co-Op".

Speaking from City Hall after the motion was passed, Cllr. Doolan said, "the Community Workers Co-Op have been involved for many years in essential work , they work with communities ensuring that communities remain active on the issues that concern them. They have been a vital voice for those who are often ignored by the powers that be. They have played a very full and active role in challenging government policy and ensuring that anti poverty and social inclusion were kept centre stage on the political agenda."

In conclusion Cllr. Doolan called on Minister Ahern, "to immediately reinstate the funding". ENDS
