Macra urges people to be neighbourly in bad weather

Chair of Macra na Feirme’s Rural Youth Initiative Committee, Ger Griffin, has urged members to be considerate of neighbours during the current bad weather, particularly older neighbours or those living in isolated areas. He asked that members “be mindful of the needs of the elderly and isolated in your communities, particularly in the harsher weather we are experiencing in many parts of Ireland.”

He asked that members “be mindful of the needs of the elderly and isolated in your communities, particularly in the harsher weather we are experiencing in many parts of Ireland.”

Mr. Griffin continued, “Not only does the harsher weather bring with it risks for isolated neighbours, drivers need to take more care on the roads. Challenging road conditions mean drivers must slow down and take due care on the roads.”

“Farmers with access to the appropriate machinery may take the initiative to help clear roads and bring groceries to neighbours who are not able to make the journey to buy supplies.”
