Shirley Griffin
Independent
Party 6


Incumbent : No

Main message to voters:

We have been betrayed by our Government. Our country is being sold-out. State policy seems to serve the few at the expense of the many. Why is our country being run to serve powerful vested interests? bankers, bondholders and speculators. Our most vulnerable have been made to suffer.

Election history:

I made it to round 10 at the local elections. This was my first time running in any election. I was very happy with the result.

Priorities:

  1. Government policy to impose water charges is wrong, it is not in accordance with the general will of the people. We already pay water charges.
  2. Does the will of the people not matter? The party 'whip' system is undemocratic. It means TDs have no chance of representing their constituents.
  3. Get rid of Irish Water, the property tax and the universal charge. Invest in mental health services and make housing a priority.
