Cllr Doyle Welcomes Cost of Living Directory

Aontú Cllr for Ballyarnett has welcomed the production of a ‘one stop shop’ directory of all support for the cost of living including the locations of warm banks following the passage of a motion of his in November at Council


“In November last year we passed an Aontú motion at Council to establish warm banks across the district but also to produce a digital and physical directory of all available support for those who may need it during the current cost of living crisis.
I’m delighted this has now been produced and includes information on advice providers, warm bank locations and providers of support from Culmore to Castlederg. 
 
These directories can be downloaded from https://www.derrystrabane.com/helpwithcostofliving but crucially are also available physically at any Council community centre, leisure facility or at Council offices in Strand Road and Derry Road.
I hope that these directories will help people identify the supports available to them but of course my party colleagues across the city remain a source of advice should anyone need it.”


ENDS

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.
