Cavan Councillor Sarah O’Reilly quits Fianna Fail

Cavan County Councillor Sarah O’Reilly has resigned from the Fianna Fáil party making her the second fianna fail member from Cavan in just over a week to quit the party . 

Announcing her decision to leave , Councillor Reilly said that Mícheál Martin and a number of senior Fianna Fáil TDs are now articulating views that are unrecognisable to grass root members .

I joined Fianna Fáil nearly 10 years ago as I sought to help make a difference for the people of County Cavan. 

It has become clear to me that the Fianna Fáil that I joined no longer exists

There is a serious disconnect between Fianna Fáil members on the ground and the leadership of the party. Mícheál Martin and a number of senior Fianna Fáil TDs are now articulating views that are unrecognisable to grass root members

Her resignation follows that of Kristopher Shekleton , another cavan fianna fail member who recently announced that he had quit the party stating that it had become a 'dictatorship' , was 'going nowhere' and 'in fact it could be going backwards' . 

Councillor O’Reilly was a vocal pro-life campaigner in the recent abortion referendum and she has announced her intention to join a new party being formed by former Sinn Féin TD Peadar Toibín.
