💚💛 I had a blast in Kerry at the launch of two amazing Social Democrats candidates. Mistura Oyebanji in Tralee, and Tim Clifford in Kenmare. Keep up with their campaigns here👉 @misturasocdem and here👉 @tim.clifford.sd

🔵 The Government’s response when asked about disability services simply is increasingly infuriating. The Tánaiste didn’t answer ANY of the questions I asked him at Leaders’ Questions on Thursday.

🇵🇸 Government’s only proposed action to help people in Gaza is a travel ban on violent Israeli settlers, but it won’t apply it to convicted violent settlers within the Israeli Government!? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtJ5bDdEmnc&ab_channel=HollyCairns

🔚 I spoke about the need to establish a public model for housing for asylum seekers, the rise of violent far-right attacks on accommodation centres, and the value of immigration to Ireland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKQDFjq4WOs&ab_channel=HollyCairns

👩‍⚕️ Our abortion services need serious reform, and the expert report agrees. Why isn’t Government acting to implement these necessary changes? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4m45DbvAxLE&ab_channel=HollyCairns

🔎 Catherine Murphy spoke in the Dáil about the need for transparency on the true owners in companies in Ireland. https://www.instagram.com/reel/C22nsIksZI8/
