#Seanad16 - Aodhán Ó Ríordáin

Posted on April 12, 2016 at 11:45 AM

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin is our Seanad candidate for the Industrial and Commercial Panel. Read more about his campaign below.

I believe in a more tolerant, more equal, and more diverse Ireland. I am ambitious for our country and I want to continue to champion the ideas that I pursued as a Minister of State.

Crucially, I want to continue my work on drug policy reform. I believe that we must ensure that addicts are given respect and appropriate access to treatment. I fundamentally support the appropriate resourcing of the local and regional drugs task forces and believe that it is important that drug addiction is treated at a local level with local services.

Over the last five years, as a TD, I campaigned to deliver two weeks paid paternity leave for new families, to take schoolchildren out of prefabs and to deliver a referendum on Marriage Equality.

In this election, I am asking for your number 1 vote, or next highest preference, so that I can continue on my work of the last five years.

It is only with your support that I can continue to work with other like minded people in our national parliament to deliver on key national issues.
