People in Meath West invited to have their say on future constitutional change for Ireland
Sinn Féin TD for Meath West Johnny Guirke has welcomed the news that the Seanad Public Consultation Committee will look at the constitutional future of the island.
Speaking today, Teachta Guirke said:
“I welcome that the Seanad Public Consultation Committee will undertake a series of hearings on the constitutional future of Ireland. This is a positive development at a time of growing conversations across all communities about how a new Ireland can come about.
“This is an important opportunity for people in Meath West to have their say on Irish unity.
“Here in Meath West, many conversations are happening every day about the benefits constitutional change can bring for all our communities.
“The appetite for change is clear and it is time for open dialogue about how constitutional change can create a better, fairer and more equal Ireland for us all to share.
“This consultation brings these important issues into the heart of the Oireachtas and creates a crucial platform for discussion of pertinent issues such as the economy, environment, education, social issues and healthcare. We are also encouraging the broadest possible input from communities, including our unionist neighbours.
“I would encourage any and all interested groups and individuals here in Meath West to make submissions to the committee’s work. This is a crucial opportunity to make your voice heard about Ireland’s constitutional future.”
