Can You Count? From the four corners of Muster thousands march in Cork to defend education


They came from the four corners of Munster and beyond for yesterday’s INTO organised protest march through Cork city. 

The final numbers taking part were huge and clearly the biggest seen in the city for a long, long time. Schools from Dungarvan, Listowel, Skibbereen, Kenmare, Thurles, Limerick, Tralee were present along with a huge showing from Cork City. Union banners present were from all over and included the TUI and the ASTI.

Estimates put the march size in the region of 25,000 but it could’ve been larger. It was very much a resounding NO to the Government’s intentions to increase class sizes and make you and I (and our children) pay for the economic mess that the bosses and their cronies in Government have got us into...

At the march and protest anarchists were present with red and black flags. Nearly 2000 leaflets were handed out.

A resounding success for sure and a case of let’s make the national protest in Dublin on December 6th even bigger than planned ....!
