In Brief:

The Irish National Caucus in America is to step up its boycott campaign against the Ford Motor company.

Fr. Sean McManus said last night that the caucus was launching a direct mail campaign to half a million Irish-American households urging them not to buy Ford products.

“Conservatively speaking,” said Fr. McManus, “at least one million people will be exposed to our Direct Mail Campaign. Thats bound to have a significant impact on Ford.”

Fr. McManus said the campaign was to try to force Ford to sign the MacBride Principles of employment.
