SINN Féin members will hold a demonstration in Bandon this weekend in opposition to the €100 household charge.

Bandon Town Councillor Rachel McCarthy called on the Government to end what she described as “their scaremongering and bullyboy tactics” on the household charge.

“The Government should stop trying to bully the electorate and reverse this unjust tax.

“The fact is the government has just got this issue wrong and they need to now listen to the electorate and go back to the drawing board and introduce a fairer system to raise the revenue for local services,” she said.
