Local election campaign launch: Strong local government with Greens at the core

The Green Party launch their 2019 Local and European election candidates this weekend in Galway. Join party leader Eamon Ryan and deputy leader Catherine Martin, and meet the candidates from around the country who’ll be looking for your Green vote this May. In 2019 we’ll be fielding double the amount of candidates for the local elections that we did five years ago – over 80 in total. We are in a strong position to make this the best ever year for Greens at a local level, and our Saturday sessions will give you an opportunity to hear what our candidates have to say about transport, housing, climate and community, and how more Green voices can help make local government work for you. Hear some great campaigning ideas and workable Green solutions to the issues being raised on the doorsteps all over Ireland.
