21 October 2011 No Comments by The Northern Standard

A delegation of bikers from across several counties, and led by Brenda Brennan of Clontibret, were hosted at Leinster House on Tuesday by Sinn Féin Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin.
The bikers are campaigning against proposals being mooted in Brussels that would, if adopted, negatively affect their life’s interest and passion.
Deputy Ó Caoláin had successfully lobbied the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Leo Varadker TD, on the issue, Minister Varadker agreeing to meet the biker delegation and accept an initial collection of signatures that calls on the Irish Government and members of the European Parliament to oppose the imposition of a number of the measures under consideration.
Good Opportunity
Speaking afterwards to The Northern Standard, Brenda Brennan described meeting Minister Varadker as a good opportunity to put their case and complimented her biker colleagues for using the opportunity well and getting their message across.
Ms. Brennan presented the Transport Minister with the signed petition collected so far. She indicated that they would be continuing to collect signatures over the coming weeks and would forward those in turn.
On behalf of bikers throughout the country she thanked Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin for his whole-hearted support for their campaign and for arranging the meeting with Minister Varadker.
