Protesters get shirty for city

Up to 100 shirts have been delivered to politicians as part of a campaign by people from Waterford to highlight the "neglect" of their city.
Protesters took their "Waterford Gives a Shirt" campaign to Leinster House as part of a bid to prevent Waterford's city and county councils being merged, to petition against any downgrade of the regional hospital and to focus attention on unemployment.
Organisers Liz Murphy and Cian Foley brought some of the shirts to Dublin yesterday to present to politicians.
"We do appreciate that things can't happen overnight but they seemed to listen to us," Ms Murphy said afterwards.
