Micheal Martin visits Gorey
Preventing rural crime and the economic difficulties facing older people were two of the key issues Micheal Martin faced last Thursday during a canvass of Gorey town.
The leader of the Fianna Fail party was in Gorey with Cllr Malcolm Byrne who has recently been selected to contest the forthcoming election for the party. Cllr Byrne said the canvass had been very positive.
'We received some very good feedback in Gorey and Riverchapel. We wanted to listen to what the people had to say and the voters engaged very clearly with us. Many of the same issues came up throughout the canvass including stopping rural crime and also the economic challenges facing older people.
'We visited the shopping centre, the library and the Main Street before heading to Riverchapel National School and the new community pitch in Riverside.'
Following on from his canvass in Gorey Mr Martin went to Enniscorthy where he went on a canvass of the town with Cllr James Browne who is also contesting the election for Fianna Fail.
