Speaking afterwards, an angry Lord Mayor said he never considered abandoning the meeting. “I will not succumb to mob rule and that is what we had here tonight,” he said.
However, Socialist Party councillor Mick Barry, who is a member of the Campaign Against Household and Water Taxes, called on the Lord Mayor to withdraw his ‘mob’ remark.
“This was the ordinary, decent people of Cork and their voices must be listened to,” said Cllr Barry.
