Fianna Fáil Leader, Micheál Martin TD paid a visit to the Lagan Brick workers in Drumgill, Co. Meath on Wednesday, 15th February to show his support for their campaign for better redundancy conditions.

Senator Thomas Byrne who has already visited the site a number of times previously, accompanied his Party Leader, to the site said that ‘Micheal’s visit to the site today clearly demonstrates Fianna Fáil’s commitment to the workers and their families’ 

‘Both I and local Cavan TD, Brendan Smith will continue to support the workers in their struggle. I would urge the company to enter into talks with the unions at the Labour Court as a matter of urgency’ added Senator Byrne. 

‘The worry the families of the workers are being subjected to is totally unfair and unwarranted. We must always remember that at the heart of these issues are families and this must always be at the centre of our actions on their behalf’ concluded Senator Byrne.
