nice pic of Serina Irvine of Ballyfermot with Justin Barrett . please vote Serina Irvine 1 for Ballyfermot and Dublin South Central

#
Thanks elections watch , very impressed with the National Party Lineup , I think they have a lot to offer , certainly worth a look . while there are some things I wouldn't agree with them on I am quite impressed with their organisational skills and ireland needs good organisational skills in office to sort out the mess in the health service , housing etc
#
nice pic of national party out canvassing in Rathfarnham , please consider Philip Dwyer 1 in Tallaght . "ireland belongs to the Irish" - a direct quote from Padraig Pearse himself and so so true.

#
Check this . Doesn't James Reynolds look like the guy in the new Aldi advert ? remarkable resemblance

james reynolds left , Aldi Actor Right

#
make longford great again , he's now 10 to 1 to take a seat in Longford , that video he did with gemma o'doherty put him on the map , people in longford are sick and tired of the way the county has gone downhill and want real change . i think reynolds would work hard for them and make longford great again
#
if Eileen Gunning could get the Grand Hotel back , it would be great for the people of wicklow . the grand hotel was a great asset to the local community and is sadly missed .
#
up Ballyfermot . good luck to Serina Irvine , a great woman , she will do ballyer proud . for too long now ballyfermot has been without a strong voice , great people , but have been let down by the political elites.
#
good interview here with Gearoid Murphy and Paul Mcweeney (Sligo Leitrim Candidate)

#
you have to hand it to barrett , he is a very good coordinator , i think youth defense was at its height under barrett . was very impressed with the abortion never campaign , i know his wife was involved in organising that too , fair play to both . James Reynold is good too , very influential in the farming sector with a lot of contacts . anyway good luck to all and all anyone can do is give it their best shot
#
They will get a warm welcome on our doorstep and be invited in for a cuppa.
#
Thank You goes to Election Watch,

I very much like Charlie, would have some reservations surrounding one or two of the National Party proposals. That said, I am to say the least, delighted to see organised political reaction to the current situation on the island of Ireland.

Therefore, congratulations goes to The National Party and it's first 10 Candidates and I for one, hope to see it's next list of candidates for Election growing even further with equally desirable and varied people.

Again my sincere Congratulations
#
yep , glad to see ballyfermot finally has someone decent to vote for . looking at their facebook pages , NP members are quite active around Dublin which is good .
