It’s often said that the current confidence and supply agreement (New Politics) has left us with a ‘do nothing Dáil’. Well today’s guest, Sinn Féin TD for Dublin Mid West, Eoin Ó Broin would challenge that. As a writer and political activist Eoin is a constant voice for what he calls a fair recovery. As party spokesperson for Housing, Planning and local government Eoin was a member of the Oireachtas Housing Committee that our previous guest, architect Mel Reynolds spoke so highly of.
With Irish Politics undergoing so much generational change, people like Eoin, working in bipartisan groups, can help bring on that fairer recovery that he is speaks so passionately about.
