A Mayo Fianna Fail TD has hit out at the Green Party Leader for comments he made suggesting that people in rural Ireland should Car Pool.
Eamon Ryan has suggested that a village of 300 people needs just 30 cars to operate.
He believes the Government should incentivise car-sharing, and move towards a situation where a village would have a set amount of cars and there “would always be one available” through a collection and drop-off system.
Fianna Fail TD Lisa Chambers says the Green Party Leader is talking down to the people of rural Ireland.
Deputy Chambers says there is considerable anger following his remarks.
