Micheál Callaghan
Micheál Callaghan
Green
Party 7


Incumbent : No

Main message to voters:

This election couldn't be more important. Unemployment remains high, rural Ireland is in decline, and our climate is changing. We can choose between business as usual or a new type of politics that puts the long term interests of our country first. I am a new, young voice that can provide this.

Election history:

This is my first time standing as a candidate. I have, however campaigned in general and local elections since joining the Green Party in 2007. In 2011, I acted as campaign manager for our Cavan - Monaghan candidate Darcy Lonergan.

Priorities:

  1. Tackling rural decline by creating opportunities for job creation and entrepreneurship and supporting communities to meet their needs locally.
  2. Practicing clean, corruption free politics, which puts long term needs over short term gain. Proper planning and sustainable development are vital.
  3. Giving future generations a voice by acting to tackle climate change and develop a prosperous low carbon economy by 2050. We can be world leaders.
