The people of Cork North Central deserve proper representation in the Dáil - Cllr. Thomas Gould
Sinn Féin Cork City Councillor Thomas Gould has said that the people of Cork North Central deserve proper representation in the Dáil.
Cllr. Gould said: "The people of Cork North Central have been denied proper representation in the Dáil for the past two years; with Dara Murphy effectively abandoning his post and serving as an absentee TD. Now that he has formally resigned his seat, a by-election to fill his vacant seat must be held as soon as possible”.
"The people of Cork North Central deserve proper representation in the Dáil. They have been denied this and have been abandoned by Fine Gael.
“Fianna Fáil haven’t done much better, with Billy Kelleher running off to Europe as well, and the first act of the new Fianna Fáil TD, Pádraig O’Sullivan, last night was to sit on his hands and abstain on the vote on the motion of no-confidence in the Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy.
“No wonder the northside has been neglected and the housing crisis in Cork grows worse by the day.
“I think that a by-election to fill this vacancy should now be held imminently.”
