Independent Kerry TD demands Dublin to be pedestrianised and rural Ireland to get extra public transport

DUBLIN: As Ireland enacted the Climate Action Bill, Kerry TD Danny Healy Rae called for Dublin to be left to pedestrians and for extra public transport to be given to rural Ireland.

Speaking at an event where a number of TDs protested the final stages of the Climate Action Bill, Healy Rae said that the government had not accepted any of the more than 200 amendments proposed by the opposition.

Independent TD for Kerry said the new bill should have given more attention to rural Ireland.

“Pedestrianise Dublin and the cities, where there’s a massive amount of public transport of every creed and description. Watch the DART… watch the Luas… there’s no one inside of them. And we’ve no bit of public transport in rural Ireland,” he said.

The new Climate Action Bill legally commits the government to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 51% by the end of this decade.

The Bill is part of the Green Party’s policy goals. However, there was criticism within the party that the bill did not go far enough.
