The Fight Goes On

Posted: February 27, 2011 in Welcome

I finished up being eliminated yesterday on 778 votes, 741 first preferences. I think that wasn’t too bad when you take into account that I didn’t have that high a profile, and the surge to Mick Wallace, when he entered the race.

Over the next week, I will be sitting down with the different groups of People Before Profit/ULA supporters around the county, and we will plan ahead for the coming months.

I would like to say a massive ‘thank you’ to everyone who was involved in the campaign, those who canvassed so hard for me, those who leafleted, those who did the behind the scenes planning and those who stood by me and had the faith in me to give me their vote.

Yesterday was a great day for the United Left Alliance, we have now FIVE voices in the Dail, Joe, Joan, Seamus, Clare, and Richard (who will be elected later today after the re-count). We can build on these successes, right around the country, and we can build here in Wexford also.

The new Government will continue with the austerity measures, they will cut social welfare, they will reduce wages, they will reduce services. They will further devastate the lives of ordinary people to continue they bail out of the banks.

Join the fight back here in Wexford, join us in People Before Profit.

Keep an eye out for the meetings coming up in your area.
