The Motion was defeated, we were not – in fact we have gained in strength and in conviction;

We ended with over 40 TDs opposing the government’s amendment to our Motion – that’s nearly 25% of the current Dáil, so we’re getting closer and closer!
We have been on a long journey in Ballyhea and in Charleville, a sometimes rocky road, but this week we turned a corner, and we reinforced as we now are with new friends, new alliances, we aren’t in the least intimidated by what now lies in front of us.
