Sean McDermott Street, Dublin 1.
The formal launch of the Social Democrats #GE20 campaign outside the former Sean McDermott Street Magdalene Laundry were party leaders Catherine Murphy (above right) and Roisin Shortall (left) with Dublin Central General Election candidate, Dublin City Councillor Gary Gannon (top centre), whose campaign saved the site for ‘commemorative’ purposes .
Ms Murphy and Ms Shortall highlighted what they described as ‘four key achievable priorities’ which they intend to campaign on.
1. Introduction of a ‘save as you pay’ front-loaded home insulation grant scheme
2. Introduce a right to flexible work – in order to give families more time to care for their children, older people, family members with disabilities and themselves.
3. Establish an Independent Anti-Corruption Agency
4. Deadlines not lip service on Slaintecare implementation; Delivery of social and affordable housing to buy and rent and increased provision of public transport and cycling provision
