Cost-of-Living Public Meeting on 6th of March at 8pm in Moy - Aontú

Aontú have announced a public meeting on Cost-ofLiving Crisis on Monday the 6th of March at 8pm in The Ryandale Inn in Moy


Speaking today, Cllr Denise Mullen said said “Aontú are holding a public meeting on the Cost-of-Living Crisis on March 6th at 8pm in the Ryandale Inn in Moy. Both myself and Aontú leader Peadar Tóibín will speak about the Cost-of-Living Crisis. For over a year now, our community has been suffering from the worst Cost-of-Living crisis in living memory. The Stormont parties have not taken serious action to mitigate the impact of this crisis on families.”


Cllr Mullen continued “Recent studies are showing that 76.3% of families in the North of Ireland will struggle to make ends meet by January 2023. The cost of 500 litres of home heating oil jumped by 83% from £265 in January to £485 in December 2022. At the same time, we’re paying 143 p for petrol and 160 p for diesel. Stormont’s inaction, when so many families are being pushed up against a wall, is unacceptable. 


“We are encouraging everyone to attend this public meeting. MLAs, still taking a wage, are not doing the work they were sent to Stormont to do, while our community is being hammered by this crisis. We need a real alternative.” Concluded Cllr Mullen

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.
