Cashel Sinn Féin Councillor Martin Browne has said that a fairer budget that does not unfairly target children and families is possible.
Cllr Browne made his comments in advance of Budget 2013 this coming Wednesday and amid speculations on the type of cuts the government is set to introduce.
Cllr Browne said: “People are angry and frightened at the prospect of yet another budget that is shaping up once again to target the least-well-off in society.
“Speculation is mounting with regards to what exactly will be included in the budget this Wednesday. One thing we can be sure of is that austerity is not working.”
