Election fever is running high in both America and Ireland at present and it’s impossible not to be struck by the extraordinary contrast between Donald Trump who is hogging the limelight here with his outlandish comments and Grace O’Sullivan who is guaranteed my No. 1 Vote in the Irish General Election this Friday.
Grace O’Sullivan, who is standing for the Green Party, is a soft-spoken woman with deep, deep concern for vulnerable people in our society and for the natural environment of this precious world of ours.
She has courage, and I mean real courage, as well as clear vision and a wealth of honesty, sincerity and life experience.
Grace shares my absolute love of our native Tramore and is a person whom feel l intensely privileged to have known for many years.
Tramore, Co. Waterford, Ireland, Europe and the World will be given a very significant helping hand if Grace O’Sullivan’s voice is heard from our Irish Parliament.
Ireland’s General Election may not be hogging World News this week like Donald Trump, but I know that when I cast my vote for Grace O’Sullivan on Friday that I am voting for a candidate whose heart is in the right place and who will dedicate herself to building bridges to a better future for those who need it most.
