Galway Taxi Drivers stage Protest

Taxi drivers in Galway City have staged an hour-long lunchtime protest today as part of the ongoing national campaign to halt the granting of any more new licences.

Between midday and 1 pm drivers at the city's two main taxi ranks refused to take passengers.

The Galway Taxi Association says that people were able to get taxis during the one-hour strike by hailing them on other streets or by calling taxi companies.
The association emphasizes that it wanted to demonstrate its strong support for the national campaign, but did not want to cause unnecessary hardship to the general public.
