Environment Minister Alan Kelly may have backed out of his appearance at the MacGill Summer School, but Taoiseach Enda Kenny is now to face the wrath of Irish Water protestors in Donegal.
The Fine Gael leader is due to visit Glenties on Friday, July 24th and will be met by a noisy band of protesters.
In fact, the Donegal Right2Water group has now called on people to blow whistles and bang drums when the Taoiseach arrives.
Although the group had promised a peaceful protest for Minister Kelly’s visit, security will undoubtedly be beefed up for the Taoiseach’s visit.
A statement from the group said “Although we do appreciate this is a cultural event, it is important to remind Enda Kenny that he cannot just waltz into Donegal as if he is a welcome friend. He and his draconian Government; for the last five years, have been imposing austerity on this County and Country.
“Irish Water was ‘the straw that broke the camels back’. He has lost his mandate to govern. We are calling on him to call a General Election as soon as possible. The citizens of this Country should be given the opportunity to tell him what they really think.
“It’s time to forget the political posturing and let the electorate have their say at the polls.
Right2Water is made up of a combination of ordinary people united against Irish Water and we would like to congratulate the ordinary householders for sticking with the non-payment etc.
“When we defeat the charges we will then be intending to deliver a knockout blow to this Government at the Election.
Right2Water Donegal are asking people to attend this protest, to be loud but peaceful, and bring drums whistles, tin cans – anything to make some noise.”
