Aontú Leader Condemns Attack on School Child in Navan

Speaking this afternoon, Aontú Leader and Meath West TD, Peadar Tóibín, said:

"Footage circulating online today of a viscous and horrific attack on a school child in Navan is deeply concerning, the attack appears to have taken place in view of two schools. The Gardaí must thoroughly investigate this matter. No child should feel unsafe in school, at lunch, or after school. This display of violence is completely unacceptable and there must be full accountability here. Parents who have seen this footage today will have serious concerns about their children's safety".

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 one point one 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.
