Cost-of-Living Public Meeting on 6th of March at 8pm in Moy - Aontú
Aontú have announced a public meeting on Cost-ofLiving Crisis on Monday the 6th of March at 8pm in The Ryandale Inn in Moy
Speaking today, Cllr Denise Mullen said said “Aontú are holding a public meeting on the Cost-of-Living Crisis on March 6th at 8pm in the Ryandale Inn in Moy. Both myself and Aontú leader Peadar Tóibín will speak about the Cost-of-Living Crisis. For over a year now, our community has been suffering from the worst Cost-of-Living crisis in living memory. The Stormont parties have not taken serious action to mitigate the impact of this crisis on families.”
Cllr Mullen continued “Recent studies are showing that 76.3% of families in the North of Ireland will struggle to make ends meet by January 2023. The cost of 500 litres of home heating oil jumped by 83% from £265 in January to £485 in December 2022. At the same time, we’re paying 143 p for petrol and 160 p for diesel. Stormont’s inaction, when so many families are being pushed up against a wall, is unacceptable.
“We are encouraging everyone to attend this public meeting. MLAs, still taking a wage, are not doing the work they were sent to Stormont to do, while our community is being hammered by this crisis. We need a real alternative.” Concluded Cllr Mullen
