Cill Dara Shinn Féin Poblachtach

Statement by RSF in Wicklow

Sinn Fein Poblachtach in Wicklow feels its imperative for us to highlight the problems surrounding the theft of copper from overhead telephone lines.

Many people from the east of the county have approached us and informed us of the problem. It is mainly rural areas which are being affected. This is far from a "victimless" crime and is causing serious damage to the local economic and communication network.

Business's relying on telephonic communications have been left bereft of a landline service and it is losing them money. In this climate,with the lack of support from the Free State government support for small and indigenous business, this is not what they need.

Also many old, sick or vulnerable people have been robbed of a key contact with there family and friends. We would implore anyone who knows someone living in the areas affected who is vulnerable or on there own to call to them and check up on them.

Remember Ireland is in essence "a community of communities" and it is our duty to look after those that need our help that live in ours.

"We of Republican Sinn Féin are the nucleus, which represents what Emmet represented,
the soul of Ireland,the prophetic shock minority, those who are neither purchased nor intimidated."
