VICE-PRESIDENT OF EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT TO LAUNCH DOLAN CAMPAIGN IN BALLINASLOE

Vice-President of the European Parliament, Mairead McGuinness MEP, will visit East Galway this weekend as guest speaker at the Ballinasloe launch of Fine Gael’s election candidate for Roscommon- Galway, Councillor Aisling Dolan.

Mairead McGuinness, who represents the Midlands North West constituency, was first elected to the EU in 2004 and is in her third term in office. She is a member of the Parliament’s Agriculture and Rural Development Committee, the Environment, Food Safety and Public Health Committee and the Constitutional Affairs Committee, the committee with responsibility for overseeing the Brexit process.

 

Mairead was the first female graduate of UCD’s Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Economics in 1980. She was voted by her colleagues as MEP of the Year for Agriculture in 2011. In 2014 she was awarded the UCD Foundation Day Alumni Award in Agriculture and Food Science.

Fine Gael is a member of the centre-right European People’s Party, the largest and most effective bloc in the European Parliament.

Councillor Dolan says “I’m delighted to have such a trailblazer attend my launch in Ballinasloe. I have always admired Mairead and what she has achieved for the region, particularly in terms of farming and agriculture. She is a stalwart female politician who is tremendously respected by people at home and abroad and is an effective member of the European Parliament.”

Open invitation to all to join us for the launch at the Shearwater Hotel in Ballinasloe at 7.30pm on Saturday February 1st.
