Election Heating Up Now

Another day, another two counties knocked out on the canvassing trail. The Fair in Kilmallock was busy today as was I and James Heffernan – a fantastic local election candidate. Every Labour candidate across the country now is full of energy, buoyed on by the amazing response on the doorstep and the natural momentum we have gained over the past year. The Labour team is hungry for success and James will deliver I have no doubt. He comes from a strong hurling family and he possesses the same hunger for success that has made the Heffernan name famous.
We also stopped by the Fleadh in Abbeyfeale with another candidate and friend Stephen Goulding. I have never seen a man canvass a town as hard. If your from West Limerick and haven’t been approached by Stephen Goulding I can only imagine you have been living under a rock.
Made it back home in one piece, knocked on a few doors in Nenagh and checked in with all the candidates in the local elections there. It is always nice to get back to close to home at the end of the day. European elections demand you spend time on the road, so I value any time I get to spend close to home. The election campaign is heating up now and it is now Labour’s time – of that I’m certain.
