Historic Day For Cork – O Brien
Newly elected TD for Cork North Central, Jonathan O Brien, has described his election as a historic day for Cork.
Jonathan O Brien said: “This has been a historic election. The people have shown that they want strong and principled representation in Cork North Central, a constituency long taken for granted”
“I am humbled to have received so much support from the people of this area, who have chosen the first Cork Sinn Féin TD in the tradition of Terence MacSwiney in modern times. However amongst the celebrations tonight I wish to put the government on notice that Sinn Féin will be a formidable opposition both within and outside the Dail. We will fight tooth and nail any attempts to force people to bear the burden of gambling by bankers and developers.”
“Nationally people have come out in strength and voted for Sinn Féin policies supporting people against the savage policies of the previous government. We want to build on this and focus on creating the momentum to achieve real political change over the coming years towards a strong and vibrant united Irelands of equals”ENDS
