Fianna Fáil General Election candidate for Galway East Cllr Anne Rabbitte says more than 150 farmers in the county are still waiting for their applications to be processed under the Rural Social Scheme. She’s calling on the Department of Social Protection to intervene and ensure that these backlogs are addressed as a matter of priority.
