9 January, 2016 - by John Brady TD


Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams TD will officially launch the party’s General Election campaign for the Wicklow East Carlow constituency. The event will take place at the Royal Hotel Bray on Monday 18th January at 7.30pm.

Speaking ahead of the official launch of the election campaign, Cllr Brady said;

“I’m delighted that the Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams will officially launch my election campaign on Monday 18th January in the Royal Hotel Bray. I’m proud to have been selected to represent Sinn Féin in the forthcoming election and I’m looking forward to running a vibrant, positive campaign and intend on bringing the positive message of change to as many homes across the constituency as possible. In the centenary of the 1916 Rising, we can make history again by returning the first Sinn Féin TD for Wicklow in over 90 years.

“Sinn Fein takes nothing for granted; despite the constant speculation on who might form the next government, we in Sinn Fein are keenly aware that it will be the citizens of this state who are the final arbiter when it comes to deciding who might lead the country for the duration of the next Dáil term. For our part, Sinn Fein aim to present a credible alternative to the disastrous policies of Fine Gael, Labour and Fianna Fail. With fifty candidates standing across all constituencies in the country; for the first time ever citizens have the opportunity to reject the self- interest culture of the establishment parties and vote for a fairer recovery.

Councillor Brady went on to say that Sinn Fein has been canvassing already across Wicklow and East Carlow and it is clear that people are ready for a change of government:

“The message on the door-steps is clear; after years of austerity, the so-called recovery has done nothing to alleviate the hardship on hard pressed families, businesses and community groups. Canvassers from all over the county are reporting back stories of intolerable distress caused by the many failures of this government. It is also clear that the effects of austerity are indiscriminate, with individuals and families from all social classes struggling needlessly.”

“For a number of weeks the Sinn Fein team have been criss-crossing the constituency knocking on doors and engaging with people. We are lucky to have a bright, energetic team bringing the Sinn Fein message of fairness and equality to every corner of the constituency. We would like to welcome as many people as possible to the launch on January 18th. Moreover, if anybody is interested in getting involved during the campaign they should feel free to contact Sinn Fein or myself at any time or approach us directly on the night”.
