Protect Rural Ireland Moving Ahead With Plans To Unseat Two Kildare TDs

: 11/01/2015 - 13:27

Newly formed political group, Protect Rural Ireland, are moving forward with plans to unseat a number of politicians in the next general election.

The group will not be putting forward any election candidates itself, but says it is focusing on damaging the chances of any politician who supports the construction of wind farms or pylons.

They held a canvas in Portlaoise yesterday and as part of the event, seventy canvassers distributed flyers urging people to not vote for Minister for Foreign Affairs, Charlie Flanagan in the next election.

They say they plan to hold a canvas in Kildare in the coming weeks and will be targeting Kildare North TDs, Emmet Stagg and Bernard Durkan at this.
