Be part of building a new Ireland

Standing up for Rural Ireland


This September 2013 document is the culmination of a year-long series of grassroots community engagements and consultation led by the Sinn Féin leadership as part of our Defending Rural Ireland campaign. This discussion document examines what change is required to reverse the cycle of decline across rural Ireland and sets proposals to sustain rural Ireland by securing a fairer deal for rural households, creating and retaining jobs in rural communities, protecting rural schools and services, ensuring equal access to health services and maximising support for our Gaeltacht areas.
