« BackPeople’s rights before economic considerations says Tralee charity chairman

Euro coins

People’s entitlements should be enshrined as a right not as a discretion and income should not be dependent on budgetary arithmetic.

That’s according to the Chairman of Cumann Iosaef Community Centre in Tralee, Kevin O’Connor.

The not for profit registered charity provides a number of services around the county, including the provision of repairs in local authority estates and Meals on Wheels.

He says the dignity of each individual person should be recognised and economics should not govern our approach toward people, humanity should.
