Saoirse McHugh for Mayo

Saoirse McHugh for Mayo

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

This election is a genuine chance to get real change in Mayo, change we sorely need.

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:

A rake of photos from across the campaign! Only a few days left now, I’m so grateful to everyone who has got involved in so many different ways, I’d have cracked up a good while ago without ye!

Lots of people here have never even tried mash with skins…

It’s a conversation that needs to be had in every house in Ireland tbh https://t.co/x09pNQyObO

Anyways, what’s the best thing that happened in 2020?

Using historical deaths to get a dig in at SF isn’t the show of respect that you imagine…

You think the families of the dead are like “oh well thank god FG are using our dead to get a few snarky tweets and fake outrage headlines… it’s what they would have wanted” 1/
