Brid Smith TD speaks with Lilian McCarthy on the recent victory of Pensioners for Equality

I spoke with Lillian McCarthy, founder member of Pensioners for Equality. They scored a great victory by militant action, campaigning and protesting. Minister Doherty was forced to acknowledge the justice of their cause. True, back-money is being paid from last March only,but they won their main demand – that years spent as carers would be included in their penion calculation – and they’re not done yet !! Well done to Lillian and her fellow campaigners.
