New Pro Life Party - Promises to be 'a voice for the minority'. Peadar Tóibín TD invites parishioners to a general meeting in the Hotel Kilmore on Thursday 17th January at 7:30pm to explain future plans. The new political party he says will give a voice to the disillusioned and unrepresented citizens of Ireland. At least one third of the population does not have a voice in Leinster House. Pro-life supporters especially are earnestly asked to attend and show support for this welcomed initiative. Please contact Sarah on 086 3994658 for more information.
