Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Equality to top agenda during Sinn Féin leadership tour of 29 constituencies

1 May, 2007

Sinn Féin Chairperson and candidate for Dublin Central Mary Lou McDonald and party candidate for Dublin Mid West Joanne Spain today announced details of a major constituency tour by the party's leadership which will see visits to 29 constituencies over the next six days. Ms. McDonald said "Sinn Féin is seeking a mandate to be in government to deliver a strong and equal economy, strong public services and advance the peace process.'

Ms. McDonald said:

"Over the next six days Gerry Adams, Martin McGuinness and other members of the Sinn Féin leadership will visit 29 constituencies in Dublin, Leinster, Connaught/Ulster and Munster. Bairbre de Brún MEP is currently on a tour of Gaeltacht regions across the state. Over the coming week we will put our priorities for government before the electorate. We will highlight our strong record in the peace process and in delivery for communities across Ireland.

"A vote for Sinn Féin in this election means:

  • A strong and equal economy;
  • An end to the two tier health system - that means investing public money in the public system;
  • 14,000 social and affordable homes built for every year of the next government;
  • No primary school child is in a classroom of more than 20;
  • Investment in suicide prevention and mental health;
  • Rural regeneration and balanced regional development;
  • Real preparations for Irish unity.

"Before the General Election is held Sinn Féin will be in government in the north and during this tour of constituencies we will be asking the electorate to give us a mandate to be in government in the south."ENDSItinerary - May 1st - May 5th
