Sinn Féin TD Eoin Ó Broin tweetz:
Just 18% of 2019 Traveller accommodation budget spent to date
19 Councils have spent nothing to date
5 didnt request an allocation for 2019
And we wonder why families are on illegal sites or tragedies like Carrickmines happen???

Gavan Reilly, political correspondent with Virgin Media News, has tweeted a table (above) of which candidate councils across the country nominated to run for president and which councils put forward no candidate at all.
These are my notes – afaik there’s only three who haven’t *actively* voted to ignore all candidates, but instead where no councillor actually tabled a motion to back someone in the first place.

Thanks Gavan Reilly and Namawinelake
