John Boyle

John Boyle is the owner of a small business and has been active in politics for the past 10 years.

After joining Aontú in 2019 and witnessing first-hand the
excellent work done by Aontú representatives, he believes that if elected, he too can help make local politics work for local people.

Many families are struggling with the cost-of-living crisis, and the recent decision by the Council to increase rates by 7.95% is adding more fuel to the fire. As your local Councillor, John would fight against any further rate hikes and seek a return to the normal, lower level. From his experience in business, John is focused on promoting economic development, helping local businesses, and job creation in Limavady DEA. He believes that a thriving economy is essential for creating stable, prosperous communities. John also advocates for greater investment in education and healthcare, as he believes that access to these services is crucial for a healthy society.

If elected, John Boyle will work tirelessly to represent the interests of the people in Limavady DEA and create a better future for Causeway Coast & Glens

John's Leaflet

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.
