Back Sinn Féin to make change happen in Ireland and in Europe – Mary Lou McDonald TD

Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald has launched the party’s manifesto for the European Parliament election.

Teachta McDonald said, “Voters have a clear choice in the European elections between Sinn Féin MEPs who won’t be afraid to stand up and speak out to get a better deal for Ireland, and Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael MEPs who are uncritical, unquestioning, and unprepared to stand up for Irish interests in Europe.

“If Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael don’t stand up for your interests here at home on issues such as housing and access to healthcare, they will not stand up for you in the European Parliament.

“Our people deserve much better. Our people deserve MEPs who are ambitious for Ireland, ambitious for our young people’s futures, MEPs who will work night and day to defend Ireland’s interests and work together with others to create a better European Union.

“Our message is clear. Change starts here. Voting for Sinn Féin in the local and European elections is the first step to getting a change of government, to creating the momentum to elect a government that will sort out the housing crisis, tackle the cost of living crisis and start fixing our health service. 

“It’s time for new people with new solutions and new ideas at local government, in the Dáil and in the European parliament.

“If you want change, you have to vote for Sinn Féin in the European elections, in the local elections and in the General Election when it comes.

“Back Sinn Féin now. Back us to get the job done for you, for your family, for your community. Back Sinn Féin to make change happen in Ireland and in Europe.”
