Irish Rural Link launched report “Poverty and Social Inclusion: The Case for Rural Ireland” on the 18th October to mark UN Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
The report highlights that poverty and social exclusion is not just an urban issue and is very much evident in rural areas. It can be exacerbated in a rural setting due to the lack of services, such as transport, broadband and low-paid employment.

Findings of the report were presented in Buswells Hotel, Dublin 2 where TD’S and Senators were invited to attend.
