Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Liadh delivers for Ireland South in Europe – Mary Lou McDonald

27 January, 2019 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD

The Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald has commended the candidacy of Liadh Ní Riada in the upcoming European elections saying – “Liadh delivers for Ireland South in Europe.”  

Speaking at the selection convention in Tipperary today McDonald said:  

“Voting for Liadh and a strong Sinn Féin team makes a difference. Liadh delivers for the people of Ireland South in Europe. “

Our Sinn Féin team have been to the fore of standing up for Irish interests in Europe. At a time of great uncertainty, it was Sinn Féin’s work that ensured that rural and marginalised communities, farmers, fisheries and ordinary working people were prioritised in the face of Brexit. 

“It was Sinn Féin who ensured that the Special Designated Status for the north of Ireland was more than just an idea. Our work has placed the issue of the border and of citizens’ rights at the heart of Brexit negotiations. 

“Now we have a cost of living crisis. We have a housing crisis. The inequality experienced in rural Ireland continues to grow. Services are being cut to the bone – ordinary people are suffering.  

“Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael think they have it all sewn up. Only a strong Sinn Féin voice will challenge the partnership of these parties in the Dáil and in Europe.”
