Brid speaks in support of Farmers protest in Dáil.

The big ranchers and beef Barons like Larry Goodman are doing down the family farm and those dependent on it. Great to see these small to medium farmers standing up against the big bosses of Agri business, through their own grassroots organisation. Get up the yard!

Bríd Smith TD challenges IWA CEO over Cuisle holiday venue

Wheelchair users and their carers demonstrated outside the Dáil last week to keep CUISLE open. Its where the wheelchair users go on holidays, and they love it because of kind staff and that they can be together. €1.5 is needed to refurbish Cuisle, but the Minister won’t cough up. He says they can use hotels instead. Disappointing that the CEO of the Irish Wheelchair Association seemed to me, to lack a willingness to fight for the IWA members preference for Cuisle, indeed, not to have assessed their preferences properly, and to glorify hotels instead. Here’s our exchange at the Health committee today.

Brid Smith TD confronts Bord na Móna boss over Just Transition for the workforce

The government claims it is committed to Just Transition for Bord na Móna workers. So does Tom Donnellan, new CEO of BNM. So why won’t he attend the Workplace Relations Commission to resolve outstanding issues, and why doesn’t the Minister instruct him to? I challenged him at the Climate Action Committee today.

Bríd Smith TD on RTE News 19.11.19

There are few things that make me as angry as bullying. The powerful bullying the weak. Fine Gaelers blaming, and bullying, refugees. And why? to distract from their own mis-rule. Low-life. RTE news tonight had this following clip.

Bríd Smith TD slams Verona Murphy and FG for racism

They failed us on housing. They failed us on health..on childcare…on every issue that matters. So who do they blame? Refugees of course!! The most unfortunate of people, made scapegoats by the morally and socially bankrupt politicians of FG. Verona Murphy is deplorable, but that Varadkar fails to stand her down, speaks volumes. Shame on them all.

Brid Smith TD raises questions about the DRIMNAGH PRIMARY CARE CENTRE

FG/FF congratulate themselves on how well they manage the country’s finances, yet essential services like the long-promised DRIMNAGH PRIMARY CARE CENTRE is still on hold. Meantime mad money is wasted on projects the National Children’s Hospital and Broadband, because of dodgy contracts. I put numerous Parliamentary Questions (PQs) that never got a satisfactory answer. I raised it again in the Dáil

Bríd speaks out against racism and anti refugee/immigrant lies

The well fed, well clad, Noel Grealish TD will probably never know what its like to be hungry or cold or fearful of his life, not the way thousands of refugees do. He was leader one time of the PDs, a right-wing split from Fianna Fáil, champions of privatising everything. And now he wants people to blame migrants for what he and the likes of him did to this country. A vile man.
