#ShannonEstuary - Liadh Ní Riada, the Ireland South MEP writes Limerick Leader has hit back at Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan, after he criticised her for supporting a maritime cluster in Cork and neighbouring ports.

Limerick TD O’Donovan, Fine Gael, accused Ms Ní Riada of forgetting about Limerick, which is in her constituency, given that Foynes port is one of the deepest ports in Ireland.

The Sinn Fein MEP said she was “slightly bewildered” by his comments.

“He seems to think that my support for a maritime cluster in Cork amounts to some sort of attack on Limerick.

“Of course, this is demonstrable nonsense, in fact in giving my support to the project I specified that such a development would not just be to the benefit of Cork but would draw in all the ports in the Ireland South region,” added the MEP, who is herself from Cork.
