Father4Justice plan to protest at Rose of Tralee festival

Campaign group Fathers4Justice has announced that activists are planning to stage a ‘symbolic’ and peaceful protest at this year’s Rose of Tralee festival.

Last year the founder of the fathers’ rights group, Matt O’Connor whose family comes from Sneem, stormed the stage in the Dome dressed as a priest during a live broadcast.

He held up a picture of his son and shouted “fathers for justice” and then continued to ask all the fathers in Ireland who are denied access to their children to join him.

The peaceful protest planned for August will see women protesting instead of men.
