- Fair Recovery (3 MB)
Speaking today about Sinn Fein’s “A Fair Recovery is Possible” document, Sinn Féin General Election Candidate for Cavan, Senator Kathryn Reilly has said that the a Sinn Féin Government would ensure a fair recovery for the people of Cavan.
Senator Reilly said:
“Cavan and the border region has felt the brunt of the economic downturn and the austerity policies of this government. The economic recovery proclaimed by this Government has not been felt by many families throughout this constituency.
“This Government has shown time and time again that a fair society is an irrelevant consideration as it continues, and will continue, to implement policies which protect the elite despite the social cost. When given the opportunity to give something back at the last Budget, this Government chose to benefit the richest section of society once again.
“Despite the rhetoric by Fine Gael and Labour, youth unemployment remains high, public services particularly in rural areas remain under threat, thousands of families urgently require social housing and thousands of people are on waiting lists for our local hospital.
“Now is the time for a debate about the type of society we want to create, live in, and leave behind for the future generations of Irish children.
“In our document, “A Fair Recovery is Possible” Sinn Féin has outlined our priorities for Government.
“A Sinn Féin Government would prioritise decent work for decent pay, affordable childcare, social housing, first class public services, the promotion of an all-island economy, and the abolition of water charges.
“Sinn Féin would deliver fair solutions which will make a real difference to the quality of life of citizens across this state – Sinn Féin would ensure a fair economic recovery for the people of Cavan.”
Note:“A Fair Recovery is Possible” will be the dominant theme of Senator Kathryn Reilly’s Public Meeting with Matt Carthy MEP later this month. The Public Meeting entitled “Cavan Fighting Back, Defending Rural Ireland and its Communities” will take place on Wednesday 21st July at 8:00 pm in Hotel Kilmore.
