‘No reference to 24/7 cardiac services, no mention of University, Waterford Airport or North Quays’ – TD hits out at new Programme for Government
The new programme for government agreed by Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and the Green Party “is not what people voted for”, according to local poll-topper David Cullinane.
The Sinn Féin TD said the document – the result of over a month of intense negotiations between the three parties – fails to address any of the major issues affecting Waterford city and county.
In a post on social media this evening, Deputy Cullinane wrote: “Reading through the Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael, Green Programme for Government. No reference to 24/7 cardiology services at UHW, no mention of funding for a new University for the Southeast, no mention of Waterford Airport, no mention of the North Quays Project.
“We need clarity on all these issues. Waterford cannot he left behind again because Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael want to carve up power and exclude Sinn Féin. This is not what people voted for.”
