Taxi drivers set to protest outside Government Buildings today

Taxi drivers from all over the country are set to protest outside the Dail today over a lack of supports for their industry following the Covid-19 crash.

They will deliver a message to the Government saying they have been left behind by the State during the pandemic crisis.

The country’s four taxi groups, the National Private Hire and Taxi Association, the Irish Taxi Drivers Federation, the Taxi Alliance of Ireland and Tiomanai Tacsai na hEireann have united to organise the mass protest.

The taxi drivers will make their way from the Phoenix Park through the city to Government Buildings at 10am to highlight the problems they are facing.

Since the Covid pandemic demand for taxis has decreased by over 70%.

Sinn Fein’s transport spokesperson Darren O’Rourke will table a motion tonight calling on the Government to put a series of measures in place to help the industry.
