Brady wishes MacManus well in retirement

3 September, 2010


Wicklow Sinn Féin County Councillor John Brady has wished Labour Party TD Liz MacManus well when she retires at the next general election. Councillor Brady said it is unfortunate that a second female TD has announced her retirement from Irish politics in just one week.

Speaking today Councillor Brady said:

“Nobody can argue that Liz MacManus did not work hard for her constituents over the past thirty years or so and I wish her well in her retirement.

“It is unfortunate that Deputy MacManus has become the second female TD to announce her retirement from Irish politics in just one week. It opens up the whole gender balance debate in Irish politics once again and I only hope that more female candidates will follow Liz MacManus’ example and step forward at the next election.” ENDS
