Enable Ireland Nominates Senator John Dolan in 2020 Seanad Elections

Councillors, TD's and outgoing Senators are eligible to vote for Administrative Panel candidates in the upcoming Seanad elections. Senator John Dolan, CEO of the Disability Federation Ireland, is the candidate nominated by Enable Ireland and 9 other voluntary and community groups for these elections. This will be a strongly contested seat and while John was successful in securing his seat in 2016, it will be a tough contest to retain it. It is really important that the voluntary sector and, in particular people with disabilities, have a strong voice and representation in the next Seanad and for that reason we are asking staff to please contact your local representatives and ask them to vote for John Dolan. The poll will open on Monday 16th March and close on Monday 30th March. You can find contact details for your local representatives in the attached document. You can download template letters to send to your representative here.
