It was great to get out with Carly Bailey and our Social Democrats team in Greenhills today to let local residents know that Carly will be running next May and I’ll be stepping aside. It was great to catch up with lots of neighbours who were very kind to me and who I’ve no doubt will get behind Carly in the future.

We’ve lots more leaflets to get out; if you can join us, or drop some in your own time, please get in touch.

DermotSuch a great team getting our leaflets around Greenhills today. Cllr Dermot Looney has such respect in this community, leaving big shoes to fill.

Thanks to all those we talked with on the doors. People are frustrated & feeling left behind-looking for change & fairness.

Hope a visit to Cherryfield/ Beechfield planned. We tend to be forgotten this side of the roundabout.

I'd only love to meet this gang at my door!!😂 Good on ye 💜

Well done to the Bohs kids but in fairness they came up against a badly-organised Pat’s team who lacked urgency off the ball and accuracy on it. Miserable Pat’s performance after a good couple of weeks. Would like to see our own young lads get a run over the next few weeks.

New entrants to teaching have seen their salaries reduced compared to others doing the same job. It’s about fairness. If you do the same job you deserve to be paid the same. #Budget2019 must deliver pay equality for new entrants. #INTOValueEd
