Ryan pledges support for The Haven HUB Limerick

Aontú General Election candidate Michael Ryan praised Leona O Callaghan Fitzgerald and the volunteers at the The Haven HUB in Limerick.


“Tonight on Prime time my colleague Leona O Callaghan Fitzgerald has discussed the alarming suicide rate in Limerick and the difficulties in getting ASIST training for volunteers at The Haven HUB in Limerick. This would ensure that anyone feeling low and suicidal will have support in and around the Shannon River in Limerick. Leona has championed this cause and has amazingly in a short few weeks secured a location, has volunteers on-board and is calling for a cross-party support to make this happen.

“As the Principle of Our Lady’s Queen of Peace, I am delighted to be on the Steering committee to endorse the Haven HUB and make this happen. I have too often had to comfort children and families affected by suicide.

“As a General Election candidate for the new Political party Aontu, I will, if elected in Limerick City fight for the priorities Leona has discussed on Primetime tonight.

“Well done Leona and thank you for standing up for the vulnerable in Limerick tonight!"

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.
