2016 General Election Campaign, Independent Candidate LOOKING FOR SUPPORT

Woodland Drive,
Millstreet,
Co. Cork

Tel: 0870674520

Date: 14/02/15

Dear Sir/Madam,

I’m writing to you In relation to the possibility of putting my name forward as an Independent Candidate for the 2016 General Election.

My name is Steven O’ Riordan and I’m a member of Millstreet Macra. I’m the brother of disability activist Joanne O’ Riordan who was born without limbs. My background is in the Arts and my political interests are social and human rights issues.

I’m currently looking for help in mounting a campaign that would result in taking a seat within the Cork North West area.

The campaign would be run on a number of issues, these include; Disability, Young People, Urban V Rural Ireland, Dail Reform, Immigrants, Sport & The Arts.

I’m probably best known for my work on the issue of the Magdalene Laundries and my most recent documentary “No Limbs No Limits” The Joanne O’ Riordan. I was a key figure in securing the state apology for the women of the Magdalene Laundries. Over the years I have also used my ability to ensure that people with disabilities live in a society that is inclusive. You can see this in my local area where I was successful in getting the County Council to make all public buildings & footpaths wheelchair accessible.

I believe that the time is right to put [read more …] “2016 General Election Campaign, Independent Candidate LOOKING FOR SUPPORT”
