O’Broin links up with Social Democrats

SOUTH Dublin County Councillor Eoin Ó Broin has announced that he has joined the Social Democrats.

Social Democrats co-leaders Catherine Murphy and Róisín Shortall have welcomed the decision of Independent South Dublin County Councillor Eoin Ó Broin to join the Social Democrats.

Speaking about his decision, Cllr Ó Broin said the move to the Social Democrats was “the obvious choice” for him.

“My primary goal in politics is delivering change – in improved public services, the environment and housing – so the Social Democrats were the obvious choice for me. I am looking forward to being a member of a progressive centre-left party that has a real vision for Ireland as a fairer, more inclusive and more sustainable country.

“While I enjoyed my time as an Independent councillor, I feel that I will be able to accomplish more for my local constituents as a member of the Social Democrats. Our values and political priorities are completely aligned.”

The Clondalkin councillor added that as a member of the council, he wants to help build a “social democratic block that can further this agenda and direct budgetary and zoning decisions accordingly.”

Social Democrats co-leader Róisín Shortall said that they “are thrilled” to welcome Cllr Ó Broin to the party.

“Eoin’s decision to join the Social Democrats – the second councillor to join the party in the past two months – is further evidence that the party is continuing to grow”, she said. “We are very ambitious for the party, and the country, and look forward to working with Eoin to help bring about real and lasting change in our society.”
