Sinéad discusses why she joined the SocDems

Not so much silly season as super busy season 🙂A BUSY SUMMER FOR CORK SOCIAL DEMOCRATS

It's been quite the summer for the Cork Social Democrats with various events and meetings the past few weeks.

We've had the selection of Sile Ni Dhubhghaill Macroom Social Democrats as the local Social Democrats candidate for Macroom and Douglas based Cllr Joe Harris as the local election candidate for Cork South East ward in the 2019 Local Elections.

We hosted a joint meeting of the Cork branches and had the party's Chairperson Joe O'Connor in attendance to update us on the state of the party and upcoming events and news.

We gathered on Grand Parade and joined other groups and parties in the 2018 Cork Pride March.

Finally, while all this has been going on, our canvassers have been out meeting voters, handing out leaflets and canvassing ahead of the local elections and the general elections (whenever that is!)

Now that summer is coming to a close and the Dáil is soon returning from the summer recess, expect more news and updates from this page and the Cork Social Democrats.
