…and win the All-Ireland Hurling Final.
Galway County Cllr Michael Fahy, an Independent, calls for a ban on foreign workers in relation to the construction of the Gort to Tuam motorway.
From this week’s Connacht Tribune:
The five hundred jobs that are to be created during the construction of the Gort to Tuam motorway should be given to Galway workers . . . and not foreigners.
It has been argued that hurling teams in South Galway are decimated through emigration and there was a need to attract these hurlers back.
But Cllr. Michael Fahy emphasised that he had nothing against people from Poland, Latvia or Lithuania.
“The point I am making is that they should go home and try and get jobs in their own countries.
“We are currently in a crisis situation in County Galway. We haven’t enough jobs for our own people.
“It is 26 years since we won an All-Ireland hurling title and the main reason is that some of our best hurlers and workers are living abroad”, Cllr. Michael Fahy added.
