CEO stands over letter

The CEO of the Limerick City VEC has spoken today for the first time in relation to the refusal of bus passes to two Catholic students who attend the Villiers Secondary School.

Deirdre Frawley is standing over their decision not to give the two students bus passes and keep the bus service exclusive to protestant pupils only.

She said, “Access is based on entitlement and since Villiers is the only Protestant post primary school in Limerick, Protestant children are entitled to exclusive use of the bus”

It is also being reported that solicitor John Devane has told of his anger at the decision and will be representing the Gleeson family if this matter goes further. He also announced that he is to raise the issue with the ministers of Education and Transport.

The saga continues.
