The Alliance will contest more than 40 seats nationwide in the local elections, and Deputy Higgins has been attending the local launches of other areas in recent days.

Here in Cork the Alliance will stand Marion O’Sullivan (Cork North West), Lil O’Donnell (Cork North Central) and Cllr Mick Barry (Cork North Central) for the City Council and Liz Feehan (Blarney-Macroom) for the County Council.

The Alliance is “demanding an immediate end to austerity policies and will feature opposition to the proposed new water tax prominently in its campaigning agenda”.
