Job Creation to Top Agenda at Sinn Féin Ard Fheis

Job Creation to Top Agenda at Sinn Féin Ard Fheis Sinn Féin TD Jonathan O’Brien has said job creation and growth will top the agenda at this weekend’s Sinn Féin Ard Fheis. Deputy O’Brien, along with Sinn Féin members and public representatives from across Cork City and County, will be attending the event at the INEC in Killarney. Deputy O’Biren said: “The Sinn Féin Ard Fheis will take place in the INEC in Killarney this Friday and Saturday. This is the first time Sinn Féin has held an event on this scale in Munster and follows the historic Ard Fheis in Belfast last year. “Over the weekend 1,500 delegates will debate almost 200 motions on a wide range of topics including job creation and growth, protecting public services, the difficulties facing communities across rural Ireland, Irish Unity and the Austerity Treaty. Gerry Adams will make his Presidential Address at 5.30pm. “A number of guests will address the Ard Fheis including the head of UNITE Jimmy Kelly, a former worker from Vita Cortex, representatives from ANC, Palestine and the Basque Country and Terry O’Sullivan, President of the Labourers’ International Union of North America. “More people than ever are responding positively to Sinn Féin's message of the need to reject austerity and to stimulate the economy and create jobs and growth. We are bringing forward new and credible alternatives to the economic policies of this government and we are leading the campaign against the Austerity Treaty “This Ard Fheis provides Sinn Féin with an opportunity to promote our message that there is hope, there is a political alternative and there is a way out of the economic crisis. What you can expect to see at this Ard Fheis are party members preparing themselves for the political challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.” For further information or comment contact Jonathan O’Brien TD @ 085-2133907
