Citizens Assembly Urged To Convene To Reform Local Authorities

Ireland's largest public sector union, Fórsa, wants the assembly to discuss how councils are funded, as it claims only 8 per cent of public spending occurs at local level here, compared to an EU average of over 23 per cent.

The union says this is having a negative impact on local jobs, service quality, value-for-money, and environmental protections.
