Pearse Doherty to attend public meeting in Dundalk tonight to discuss insurance rip-offs
Sinn Féin will host a public meeting in Dundalk tonight titled ‘Insurance – End the Rip Off!’
The meeting will take place at 7.30pm in the Imperial Hotel on Park Street.
Local Councillor Ruairí Ó Murchú will be joined on the night by his party’s Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty to discuss the insurance industry.
Cllr Ó Murchú said: “A huge number of people have contacted me regarding the issue of insurance since Pearse Doherty TD brought a focus on this industry in the Dáil.
“I have been contacted by people with issues regarding their home and car insurance, businesses unable to obtain public liability insurance, community centres facing huge jumps in premiums and festivals which are facing cancellation due to the lack of affordable insurance cover.
“This whole industry is in need of a radical overhaul and I am delighted that Pearse Doherty TD is coming to Dundalk to inform people here about his plans for reform of this sector.
“I discussed this issue with Pearse Doherty in the Dáil and I know that Pearse is keen to hear how the people of Louth are being affected by the dubious practices of insurance companies.
“I urge as many people as possible to take the time to attend the Imperial Hotel at 7.30pm”
