Bus Connects Public Meeting Jolly Toper Thursday 20th Sept 7.30

Myself and Cllr Anthony Connaghan will be hosting a public meeting on the proposals for Bus Connects. I will have attended a special consultation for public representatives that afternoon and I hope to bring back to the meeting answers to questions and issues I have identified or have been raised with myself and Anthony. Bus Connects is an important development for your community and you should have as much information as possible relating to its implications for you and your family and your community. I would urge you to attend to remain updated on current developments and to raise any concerns you have with myself or Anthony. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Speaking in the Dáil on the National Drugs and Alcohol Strategy.

As Sinn Féin spokesperson on Drugs and Alcohol misuse I spoke in the Dáil on the governements National Drugs Strategy, Reducing Harm, Supporting Recovery. The strategy has many good aspirations and goals but unfortunately lacks the funding and resources to implement them. I told the minister that more funding needs to be given to Drugs and Alcohol tasks forces if the governement wants this strategy to work.
