Sinn Féin fighting to win the four by-elections – Mary Lou McDonald

Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald TD, speaking in Clondalkin, Dublin today has said that Sinn Féin are fighting to win in the four Dáil by-elections being held on Friday.

Teachta McDonald said:

“This Friday there are by-elections being held in Cork North Central, Dublin Mid-West, Dublin Fingal and Wexford and I am calling on voters in these constituencies to support Sinn Féin, not least here in Dublin Mid-West where we have an excellent candidate in Cllr. Mark Ward.

“By-elections are an important part of our democracy, and whilst it is high time that this government was put out of office and a general election called, these contests are important.

“Sinn Féin want to give workers and families a break and that is the basis on which we are seeking a mandate in these by-elections.

“We are the only party with real solutions to the housing crisis that will get us back to a position where the State and local Councils build houses on a mass scale once again, and are the only party who will reduce rents by up to €1,500 per year for tenants.

“We are also the only party that are seriously committed to Irish unity, and whilst some others may pay lip service to a United Ireland, we want action and to begin the preparation for Irish unity now.

“I make the appeal today to the people of Cork North Central, Dublin Mid-West, Dublin Fingal and Wexford to vote for Sinn Féin on Friday.”
