Galway Community Circus may be another victim of Govt. inaction on insurance reform – Smyth

-Galway 2020 event in jeopardy due to insurance costs-

Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Arts and Heritage, Niamh Smyth TD, says Galway Community Circus is at risk of becoming another victim of government failure to implement effective insurance reform.

The group, which specialises in aerial acrobatics, is a not-for-profit youth and social circus and has some 650 members.

She commented, „Galway Community Circus is at risk of becoming another victim of this Government’s failure to implement effective insurance reform. The group is due to play a key role in Galway 2020 and has been awarded €800,000 of funding for the event.

„However, they are struggling to secure adequate insurance cover. In the absence of insurance, this event will not be able to go ahead and moreover, 650 young people will be left without the undoubted physical and creative benefits this activity brings to their lives.

„Fine Gael have been in Government for more than seven years. During that time, motorists, households, businesses, voluntary groups and community organisations have endured large increases in insurance costs. This is now reaching crisis point as more and more insurance providers exit the Irish insurance market. This Government must step up and accelerate insurance reform,” concluded Deputy Smyth.
