A 24-hour protest convoy to Dublin has been organised for tomorrow.

The issues with fuel costs for truckers and consumers was brought to the fore during this week's meeting of Cavan Co Council when members discussed the matter in detail.

However, Cllr Peter McVitty told those gathered that the recent protest in Dublin - which was organised by the Irish Trucker and Haulage Association Against Fuel Prices - wasn't organised property and as such, gave a bad name to reputable organisations like the Irish Road Haulage Association.

He said that if protests were going to be organised, it was necessary to carry them out in a coherent and inclusive way.

He also highlighted how if fuel prices don't come down, the Irish Road Haulage Association would be organising an official protest in the coming weeks.

Cllr John Paul Feely, meanwhile, said that the big issue in all of this was the price of fuel over the past few months at the pumps for the ordinary consumer.

He suggested placing a cut-off point on the carbon tax.
