I just want to extend my deepest thanks to all of the wonderful constituents of Cork North Central who got out there yesterday and voted for me. Today was not to be our day.

I couldn’t have done any of this without my campaign manager extraordinaire, Dáithí, at the helm. While I juggled a busy family life, studies, teaching and the campaign, he never lost focus.
With dedication and determination, he directed us across the constituency to meet with so many people on the doorsteps.

An absolutely vital part of the core team is Louise, she has done so much more than what would be on the job description of a volunteer coordinator besides a very full schedule of her own.

Thanks too to our media manager, Saoirse Mackin who used her incredible talents to create and edit videos for us throughout our social media. Like many of us, she juggled many roles within and outside the campaign, doing so with grace and a fierce commitment.

To my Cork SocDems colleagues, of whom there are too many to mention, who spent many rainy and cold nights delivering our message to people from Farranree to Tower and beyond, I cannot thank you enough for your time and efforts.

As we head into the final months of this year, my team and I look forward to reflecting on our first bye-election and discussing how we can bring our many policy ideas to fruition throughout Cork North Central. There is much work to be done in addressing the crises facing Cork and beyond. We’ve just started the fight, and I hope you’ll stay with us throughout.
