Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has said people in rural communities are very concerned about the possible implications of being dragged out of the EU.
Ms Anderson said;
“I met with members of the board of rural community development group, RAPID, today to discuss their concerns about the possible implications of Brexit.
“Over the years RAPID have carried out excellent work supporting and developing communities in county Derry and received EU funding to do that.
“There is now serious concern in rural and agricultural communities about the impact being dragged out of the EU by English voters would have.
“The majority of the people of the North clearly voted to remain in the EU and that vote needs to be recognised and respected.”
