Happy International Women’s Day! The origins of this day go back over a hundred years to a group of women fighters, something like the ex-Debenham’s women (sorry lads), who never gave up. I spoke about both in the Dáil. Hope you can join us for our meeting tonight, advertised on this page – great speakers. It’s at 7.30pm. Register early. #internationawomensday #internationalwomensday2021

Forgive my breathlessness on this clip – I had been questioning issues related to Jobpath in the committee rooms – some way away from the Dáil chamber when my turn came to speak – so I ran because this is important. Yes we remember Enda Kenny’s words and tears about the Magdalene women. But actions speak louder than words, a point I wasn’t allowed put to Coveney. Seven women have died waiting for redress. Wouldn’t it be a great gesture if on International Womens’ Day the government GUARANTEED all resources needed to give these women redress – NOW?
