Anna Daly

AN ADVOCATE OF PRO-LIFE VALUES • REDUCTION OF CUH OVERCROWDING • PROGRESSION OF CORK EVENTS CENTRE • SAFE AND SECURE SOCIAL HOUSING • SUPPORT FOR COMMUNITY AND VOLUNTARY GROUPS • GREATER ACCESS TO FUNDING FOR THIRD LEVEL EDUCATION

Anna Daly is married to Brian and mother of five children.  Originally from the North Side of Cork City, now living in Blackrock since 2007.  After having worked in the electronics industry for several years, Anna took a career break to stay at home and focus on her young family.  During that time, she was involved in her children’s schools as part of the Parents Association and also in various fundraising events and social activities at the schools. 

In 2005 she co-founded Cork New Life Media with her husband Brian, which led to the first fully licensed Christian radio station to air in the Republic of Ireland.  This Christian Community radio station first broadcast over the airwaves on 93.1 Life FM on 16th March 2008 and was recently awarded their next 10-year license from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland in 2018.  

Anna is passionate about the community in Cork and believes that the strength and the benefit of building strong communities are vital to the social and economic fabric of our nation.  Anna has been dedicated over the past 10 years to advocating for community and voluntary groups and acknowledging the work and the contributions that these groups make to benefit the city as a whole.  When people work together in unity and focus on a common goal, anything is possible.

The Irish political system is radically broken



In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder a half a billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.



Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.



Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
