Fianna Fáil Seanad Spokesperson on the Irish Overseas and Diaspora and Member of the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, Senator Mark Daly is calling on Irish people, at home and abroad, to contribute their ideas to the Fianna Fáil policy paper on the Diaspora which is currently being revised. Fianna Fail was the first political party to ever produce a policy paper on this issue.
Senator Daly commented: “With everything that is happening across the world, and especially in the United States, Ireland needs a strong stance on issues affecting Irish people, and people of Irish descent.
“Fianna Fáil is committed to ensuring that the voices and opinions of Irish people overseas are heard, and included in our policy positions.
“Issues such as immigration reform in the United States which will affect the 50,000 undocumented Irish currently living there and Brexit will affect us all, but for those in the United States or Britain, they are especially pertinent.
“We want to hear what people feel are the major challenges affecting the Irish diaspora, and what solutions people feel are suitable.
“Submissions can be made until Friday, 24st February by emailing me at Mark.Daly@oireachtas.ie
“I would urge anyone with an interest in, or knowledge of, diaspora issues to get involved,” concluded Daly.
