Moynihan calls on OPW to open up Dublin Castle for results
Labour Party representative for Dublin South Central, Cllr. Rebecca Moynihan, has called on the OPW to have the grounds of Dublin Castle open to the public on results day, tomorrow, Saturday 26th May.
Councillor Moynihan said:
“I have written to Minister of State with responsibility for the Office of Public Works, Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran calling on him to open up Dublin Castle on Saturday to allow all those who have given so much to this campaign to congregate. Access should be open to the Upper Yard of Dublin Castle, and the results of the referendum as they come in should be shown on a large screen, as it was three years ago for the marriage equality results day.
“Regardless of the result, people who have contributed so much to this referendum campaign, whether they are seasoned campaigners, or new activists, should be allowed to come together at the official announcement as they did for marriage equality.
“This has been a long campaign, thirty-five years in the making. It has ignited a new sense of activism among young people in our country. I think it is appropriate for Dublin Castle to be open to as many that want to attend, rather than just the select few who were randomly allocated tickets and accredited media.”
