Ministers decision criticised by Dingle fishermen.

Fishermen in Dingle have criticised a decision by Marine Minister Dermot Ahern to suspend the landing of catches during the small hours of the morning, as they’ve always done. The order will effect a number of other ports including Rathmullen, Killybegs, Rossaveal, Galway, and Castletownbere. The Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation has suggested the ban has come about because of a problem with members of the Minister’s own department. Spokeman Sean O Donoghue says fishermen don’t work office hours.
