In a Dail session this week, Peadar Tóibín, leader of Aontu reveals that Ireland has the longest lockdown of any other European country.
In his speech, Peadar Tóibín said; “Ireland has the longest and most severe workplace restrictions in Europe.”
“Ireland has 163 days of work lost due to closure. This compares to 34 days in Germany and that’s an outstanding fact.”
“This country has had to lockdown for longer and more severe with regards restrictions than other European countries due to the way that this illness has been managed.”
“Young people presenting with acute mental health issues was up 130% since 2019.”
“Two months after the vaccine landed in this country, the equivalent population to County Louth has been fully inoculated.”
“In Tuam, they have the vaccine but they don’t have the needles.”
“On behalf of Aontu, we don’t have confidence in this Minister (Stephen Donnelly Fianna Fail) in the work he is doing at the moment.”
