Sligo-Leitrim TD Marian Harkin is calling for a special dispensation from the level 5 Covid restrictions to allow people travel short distances from their homes to buy real Christmas trees direct from farmers.

The Independent TD says people are being asked to shop local, and buying a real Christmas tree from a local seller helps to inject money into the local economy.

Deputy Harkin says this once-a year opportunity for Christmas tree growers to sell their output cannot be missed if their businesses are to survive, but this needs flexibility in the current Covid regulations on travel and trading.

The Sligo-Leitrim TD is to raise the matter with a number of Government Ministers.
