Ag tacú le Meitheal Mhúscraí

Seo ráiteas ó Chomharchumann Forbartha Mhúscraí maidir le h-iarmhairtí an chinnidh MFG a scor.
Le h-éisiúint: Laithreach


Buille trom do Ghaeltacht Mhúscraí an fhógra tobann go bhfuil Meitheal Mhúscraí le dúnadh laithreach mar gheall ar chinneadh gan choinne a ghlac bórd Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltachta an eagras a scor an tseachtain seo.

B’shin a bhí le rá ag Bainisteoir Chomharchumann Forbartha Mhúscraí, Concubhar Ó Liatháin, ar chloisint na drochscéala ón gcruinniú a bhí ag Bórd MFG Dé Chéadaoin.

“Tá pobal Ghaeltachta Mhúscraí ag brath go mór ar an obair íontach atá á dhéanamh ag Meitheal Mhúscraí sa cheantar,” dúirt sé.

“Fágann an chinneadh seo go mbeidh go leor daoine aosta agus faoi mhí chumas éigean buailte go trom agus fagtha gan seirbhísí,”

Tá isteach is amach le 30 duine fostaithe ag Meitheal Mhúscraí ag cur coras taistil ar fail d’aosaigh, ag obair sna h-ionaid lae agus ag cur seirbhísí ar fail do dhaoine i mbaol sa Ghaeltacht seo.

“Caithfidh POBAL agus an Roinn Comhshaoil atá freagracht acu as MFG teacht i gcabhair laithreach ar Mheitheal Mhúscraí agus comhlachtaí eile MFG atá ag obair go dícheallach agus go diograiseach ar an talamh chun seirbhísí a chur ar fail do dhaoine atá theana féin ag fulaingt.

“Tá sé thar a bheith tabhachtach na postanna seo a choimead slán, ar mhaithe na daoine atá ag brath ar an ioncam ó na postanna seo ach chomh tabhachtach céanna ar na daoine atá ag brath ar na seirbhísí atá á chur ar fail ag na fostaithe.

“Táimíd ag iarraidh freisin ar na h-údaráis cuí a chinntiú go n-íocfar deontaisí atá ceadaithe faoi scéim Leader d’eagraíochtaí ar fuaid Mhúscraí atá ag brath ar an dtacaíocht sin chun obair riachtanach Forbartha a dhéanamh ar áiseanna sa cheantar seo.”

Comharchumann Forbartha Mhúscraí supports Meitheal Mhúscraí in face of decision of MFG to cease trading

The decision by the Board of Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltachta to cease trading has been described as a heavy blow to the Múscraí Gaeltacht by the manager of Comharchumann Forbartha Mhúscraí, Concubhar Ó Liatháin.

The board of MFG took the decision on Wednesday afternoon following a meeting in Claregalway. The workers at the organisation’s Múscraí office heard on the media their jobs were terminated.

“The people of Múscraí depend for a wide range of services on the great work of the Meitheal Mhúscraí team,” said Mr. Ó Liatháin. “The harsh effects of this decision will be felt most keenly by the elderly and other vulnerable groups who depend on Meitheal Mhúscraí to provide transport, meals and other vital services.”

There are up to 30 people employed, mostly on a part time basis, by Meitheal Mhúscraí. The organization has been very successful on a local basis since it’s foundation in the 1990s. It is now feeling the brunt of a decision by the board of MFG, which is the parent body responsible for several local organizations in Gaeltachtaí throughout Ireland.

Both POBAL and the Department of Environment were urged to come to the immediate assistance of Meitheal Múscraí and its sister organizations on the ground to ensure the vital services they provide are continued for the benefit of the local people in Múscraí.

“We also urge the appropiate authorities to ensure the grants allowed by MFG for various projects which applied for LEADER funding are paid. These funds are vital for the further development of vital facilities in the region.”
