Kilkenny businessman critical of ‘knee-jerk’ reaction by Government to insurance crisis

Former VFI President Pat Crotty says it won't solve the bigger issue

A local businessman says the move by Government to offer a one-off payment to childcare providers is a scandalous decision.

Pat Crotty who owns Paris Texas Bar & Restaurant in Kilkenny City says it a knee-jerk reaction that won’t solve the insurance issue.
