Speaking at the launch of the General Election Campaign for the Louth/ East Meath Constituency in the Westcourt Hotel in Drogheda on Monday Evening, Sinn Féin General Election candidate Councillor Imelda Munster said that Sinn Féin has solutions that will address the problems we have in this state today.
Cllr Munster said:
“Like all Republicans I have a vision for our country, a country that has freedom, equality and fairness for all its citizens enshrined in its constitution just like the 1916 Proclamation states.
“We need a government that leaves no stone unturned to ensure it delivers for all its citizens but unfortunately we have yet to see this happen.
“The parties who have run the state since partition have destroyed the economy, brought the state to its knees and gave away whatever sovereignty existed.
“They are trying to tell us there is a recovery but it’s not a recovery for all, it is not a fair recovery, it’s a recovery for a few.
“Sinn Féin is different. We put people first. We are now the biggest threat to the corrupt administration in the 26 counties and the elites are terrified of us.
“Sinn Féin has costed solutions that will address the problems we have in this state today.
“That’s why I am standing here today. I want to make a difference and my life and yours will be better with Sinn Féin.
“I want to get elected to strengthen the Sinn Féin team in Leinster House because by doing so, I will be strengthening the voice of the more vulnerable in our society.
“One hundred years ago this year, Irish men and Irish Women rose up against all the odds.
“They dared to dream of a better Ireland, they dared to dream of a new republic. So they shot and imprisoned them. Well guess what – They can kill the revolutionary but never the revolution.
“Look around you, is this the type of country you want your children and grandchildren to grow up in, and watch them emigrate from? We all need to stand up just as they did in 1916.
“Sinn Féin has a vision for a new and better Ireland. We need to stand up and elect a party that will dare to bring that 1916 dream to fruition.”
