My colleague and friend and Labour Presidential Candidate Michael D. Higgins is holiding a public meeting this Thursday, September 8th at the White Sands Hotel, Portmarnock, Co Dublin.
I was delighted and honoured to be re-elected to serve the people of Dublin North East on February 25th last. I would like to deeply thank all of you who voted for me and put your confidence in me to represent you in Dail Eireann. Once again I intend to vigorously stand up for all of my constituents across Dublin North East throughout the 31st Dail.
I received a warm welcome as always when canvassing in the Darndale estates today and yesterday. Here I’m being greeted by the outstanding community leader Jean Hand & her husband John.
I met Joan Burton and colleagues from across the country at Labour’s national campaign launch in the Guinness Storehouse this morning. There were spectacular views from the Storehouse of Dublin from Clondalkin right across to Howth.
As I walked into Dail Eireann this morning, Deputy Michael Noonan remarked to me that the implosion in the FF/Green government “was like the fall of Saigon and that the only thing missing was the choppers” lifting.
