It is high time that Fianna Fáil laid off targeting hard-pressed families and older people, and supported this progressive move,” he said.The Fianna Fáil Mayor of Limerick City and County, Cllr Kevin Sheahan, said he had no comment to make when asked whether he agreed with his party’s national position on the free GP scheme.Fianna Fáil councillor for City West, Sean Lynch praised Cllr Daly for his integrity and the passion he brings on all topics relevant to Limerick City and County. However, he believes the Labour representative may have misinterpreted Fianna Fáil policy on health care.“Fianna Fáil have always been the party of the people. They would expand on the free GP care for both the young and old,” Cllr Lynch commented.“They will focus on primary and community care services and increase primary care budget.” Facebook NewsLocal NewsFianna Fáil told to stop picking on pensioners and families in LimerickBy Alan Jacques – April 23, 2015 697 Linkedin Top Fianna Fáil councillor will reject Green coalition deal Email Advertisement Printlast_img read more
