Solidarity
Party 5


Incumbent :

Election history:

Elected Cork City Council 2004 and re-elected 2009 and 2014. Elected TD in 2016. Thirty-five years of activism including being jailed for my part in the campaign against the introduction of bin charges.

Priorities:

  1. SCRAP WATER CHARGES/PROPERTY TAX. Link the boycott to the election of radical Left TDs and force the next Govt to abolish the charge and Irish Water.
  2. HOUSING ACTION. For strong rent controls and an emergency social housing programme. For mortgage writedowns - don't base mortgages on bubble prices.
  3. REPEAL THE 8th AMENDMENT. Stop forcing women abroad. A society which trusts women will allow them to make their own choices in this country.
