A new page in the push towards a united Ireland was written in New York in March when the Great Hall of Cooper Union hosted a major Irish Unity Summit. It was a day-long conference focusing on the work, design, inclusion, and conversations needed to create a new and United Ireland. Hundreds of people attended in person while hundreds more watched the event live online.

Taking time to listen the people

For Sinn Féin we will look to build on the gains as we head into an expected general election in the Fall. That election will be a choice between more of the same with Fianna Fail and Fine Gael, the chaos of independents, or a government led by Sinn Féin that will deliver on housing, public services, and for communities. The road to building a new and united Ireland will be bumpy, but we continue to move ahead.

A star that shone brightly – Volunteer Ella O’Dwyer remembered

Ella’s brilliance extended far beyond her Republican activism. She was an exceptional writer, earning an honours degree in Linguistics and Philosophy, followed by an MA on Women and the Colonisation of Language, and a PhD, culminating into her powerfully intellectual book, “The Rising of the Moon,” which stands as a testament to her remarkable mind. Dr. Ella O’Dwyer will undoubtedly be listed among the Greats—Samuel Beckett and W.B. Hu Yeats—her legacy etched in the annals of Irish history.

On the Doors

While no two elections are the same, one constant has been the caliber of Sinn Féin candidates. In these elections, we are fielding more candidates in more areas across the South.

The candidates in my area are inspirational. Talking with voters, listening to voters, and acting for voters. On the canvas trail, one commented that it was like having hundreds of job interviews as they moved to the next house and the next interview.

It takes a lot to put yourself forward. To put in the hard yards on the doorsteps, representing voters and dealing with hard cases of families in real need.

Voting for Sinn Féin the Local and European elections is the first step to getting a change of government – Mary Lou McDonald TD

Sinn Féin Leader Mary Lou McDonald has said Simon Harris and Fine Gael’s failure to deliver affordable homes has resulted in the collapse of homeownership for a generation in Dublin and across the state.

She warned that if Fine Gael are in government for another five years, home ownership will remain outside of their reach and that is why voting for change is so important on Friday.

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.
