Priorities
• Adequate, safe and affordable childcare for working families. Transferrable maternity leave between parents. Options and opportunities for job sharing in both public-private sector employment
• A GP card for all, I believe it is possible for a GP card to be provided to all citizens, if a quota was introduced – giving a fair service to all
• Proper provision for Special Educational Needs. Reduction in class sizes in both primary and secondary. Re-established and improved facilities in career guidance for second level students
• Fair prices for all produce. Protection of Farm Assist and the Rural Social Scheme, which already have been subjected to a series of changes and harsh cuts
• For rural towns and villages: essential services re-opened. More Garda presence. Investment into festivals. Sustained and real investment into the Arts
• Abolish Job-Bridge - it’s an insult to capable working people. Adequate support to graduates seeking employment. Properly structured internship programmes established for all sectors of employments. Protection with legislative change around low and zero hour contracts
• Abolish Irish Water
• Accountability of the Property Tax
• Full investment into rural broadband provision
