As the country gears up for what is hoped to be the biggest march against water charges to date, Sinn Fein’s Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald has today gone as far as saying that the protest scheduled for next Wednesday could be a ‘knock-out blow’ for water charges.
Anti Austerity Alliance TD Ruth Coppinger added that a big turnout could hit the “appalling and arrogant” government.
The protest marches are scheduled for Wednesday, December 10.
