The recently launched Manifesto from Fianna Fail Donegal South West By Election Candidate Brian Ó Domhnaill.
The seven page Personal Manifesto “Fighting For Your Future” , takes notice of National issues. He writes that he will vote for the forthcoming budget.
“Because I believe we must act to restore the national finances before we can again see jobs and growth I am very clearly saying I will support the proposed multi-year budget plan. This means I will have to support many unpopular choices – but I will not join the other candidates in pretending that these choices can be avoided. ”
And the Fianna Fail Harp Logo makes a comeback appearing on the second page.
Not sure how ‘Official’ this video is, anyhow its quite amusing and urges a number one vote for Independent candidate Thomas Pringle in the forthcoming Donegal South West By-Election .
