The Sinn Fein MEP Liadh Ni Riada says the
Irish government has the power to re-negotiate the EU fishing quota to help
struggling fishermen in Ireland. She was
speaking in Strasbourg where she’s been meeting the EU Fisheries Commissioner, Karmenu Vella. Ms Ni Riada has accused the Minister for the Marine, Simon
Coveney of ignoring smaller fishermen in Ireland. She says the Minister should
look at re-negotiating the fishing quotas to enable the smaller fishing
communities to increase their fishing capacities.
Out words: smaller fishermen
