Labour TD Kathleen Lynch has been selected as the Party’s candidate for Cork North Central in the forthcoming general election.
Speaking at her selection convention last night Deputy Lynch said: “I have been privileged to serve the people of Cork as their public representative, and I hope to continue to be their representative in Dail Eireann for some time yet.
“In the forthcoming election I will be standing on the record of the Labour Party, a party that is playing a central role in a Government that has brought Ireland from the brink of economic disaster, to where we are now, the fastest growing economy in Europe.
“When the next election comes around, people will be faced with a choice. Yes they can vote for candidates for one of the parties that got us into this mess in the first place; they can vote for professional protesters who are against everything and in favour of nothing; they can vote for a party that claims to be against austerity down here, but want to close down small schools in the North.
“But I think that what people will actually do is vote in a government that they know can continue to deliver on political stability and economic recovery in the years ahead, and I believe that Labour should be at the heart of that Government.”
