Anthony Connor Vindicated

Thomas Lynch welcomes the not guilty verdict in the case of Drogheda political activist, Anthony Connor. 

Delighted for Anthony Connor who was found not guilty this morning in Dundalk Court on both charges of alleged assault of an Irish Water worker during meter installation protest in Rathmullen.

We always knew the charges were trumped up charges which brought a barring order against Anthony from entering any estates where meters were been installed.

This was the sole purpose in our view to why the charges were brought as Anthony was totally opposed to such installations where as the government are trying to tax the people for water they already pay for.

Anthony was one of the very few who stood with us in Duleek preventing water meters been installed especially when we were physically attacked in Stoneyford Green by Coffey Northumberian workers while Gardai looked on.

Thomas Lynch is a moving force behind the Duleek 1916-1981 Monument Committee
