Fianna Fáil candidate Mary Hanafin has said the priority for the upcoming general election campaign must be to look at the kind of society in which we want to live.
Cllr Hanafin will contest the election in the Dún Laoghaire constituency alongside Cllr Cormac Devlin. She has promised to bring experience to the campaign and if elected, to talks on the formation of the next government.
“It is my privilege to contest the upcoming election for Fianna Fáil in Dún Laoghaire. The outcome of the election cannot be predicted. I hope to bring my extensive experience to bear in the formation of party policy, and if elected to the multi-party discussions that are likely to take place after polling day,” said Councillor Hanafin.
“This campaign must be about looking at the kind of society in which we want to live. This government is dumbing down the education system, has adopted an immoral approach to the housing crisis and has failed to appreciate the problems being experienced by families with young children and older people.
“If elected, these are the priorities that I would like to address in the next Dáil. I look forward to working with Cormac Devlin to ensure that these issues are at the forefront of the election campaign in Dún Laoghaire.”
