The only way a transition to a low carbon economy will ever work is by changing the economy of Mayo to benefit communities, towns and villages instead of the biggest companies and largest producers.
We can have things like rural transport and rewards for extensive farming in Mayo if we fight for it.
Roughly a million euro per year leaves Achill in electrcity bills, as we move to renewables these projects should be community owned, so that money stays in and transforms the entire economy of Mayo.
We can fight for this future

Unfortunately because there was only 3 weeks warning I didnt get a chance to knock on as many doors as I wouldve liked, but I want anyone to feel free to get in touch:

Perhaps…. all this ridiculous talk by a few newspapers about a FFFGGreen coalition is trying to deflate the pro broad left message from the election and put us bickering over nothing?

Like so much land in the Americas… It has never “belonged” to Canada or the US or Brazil or Equador or wherever https://t.co/PVZG67nZ3h
