icon_flowers Hi Joanna and great to meet you too! I am told Sharon mentioned the rally would be on the 9pm RTE news and TV3 was there too so both main TV networks; also lots of journalists and a great turnout in the drizzle! Poor Leo and Jaspar were a bit soggy but hung in there til the end.
It's the press coverage we really wanted, that pushes the issue back into discussion. Thanks to any and all who signed the petition, sent letters, came today, and gave any form of support! I am really happy with the turnout as I hadn;t thought we'd get so many out in the rain. Lots of cars and buses honked at us too! icon_banana
That's fantastic news .....
I was unfortunately on training with the Fire Brigade yesterday and wasn't free until after 5pm .... was thinking of you guys though in the rain.... Hope Jaspar and Leo are well dry now???
Please put some links on the board of any coverage. Wish I was in Ireland to be there for the support yesterday.
Congrats to all of you that made it. Let's hope this made a big difference!!!
The Irish Independant covered it today:
It was also on last night 9pm national news.
Im ragging I couldnt get to go I heard it was a good turn out
Hopefully the Government will stand up and take some notice now icon_crssedfingers
