News that blockade is to be lifted at Inch is a positive step – Conway
21st May 2023 - Senator Martin Conway
A Fine Gael Senator has welcomed news that the blockade at Inch is to be lifted.
“I am very pleased to learn that protestors at Inch who had blocked the road to the hotel which is housing refugees say they will lift the blockade,” said Fine Gael Clare Senator Martin Conway.
“This will bring to an end almost a week of disruption and protest to the area and will undoubtedly be welcomed by everyone in the locality.
“The blockade had brought a very unwelcome focus to Clare over the past six days and highlighted the importance of communication between all stakeholders when accommodating refugees.
“While I acknowledge communities’ right to express concerns, it is not right that anybody’s movements should be restricted, impeded or stopped by any other party, and I see this move as a very positive sign and a direct result of the engagement that has taken place between community representatives, Government representatives and members of an Garda Síochána.
“I wish to pay tribute to all who involved themselves in the discussions over the past week for entering into them with a genuine desire to resolve differences. I would hope that all parties have learned from their negotiations and that as we move forward with future plans, any similar scenario will be avoided.”
