Think Of The Ógra

atest press release from Wicklow Sinn Féin, issued on Thursday, June 10th 2021…

Ógra Shinn Féin is an exciting opportunity for young people aged between 16 and 26 to get involved in politics in their local area.

It is a way for young people to stand up for issues with other young people who are facing the same struggles on a daily basis.

Ciarán Deay, Youth Officer for Wicklow Sinn Féin said of the new structure in the county; “Young people have lost so much over the last year and have largely been forgotten about by the Government. Ógra will be a space for them to speak up and be heard amongst their peers – peers who are going the same struggles, be it with their mental health, employment or education.

“This is such an exciting opportunity for young people to have a space to discuss issues that matter to them and decide on ways that they can help to solve the issues or shine on light on them.”

Wicklow Sinn Féin TD John Brady commented on the news saying: “Ógra Shinn Féin will allow more young people to have a voice across the county. More and more young people feel they are not being listened to and are being left behind. Ógra will bring these young people together and will allow them to shape campaigns and initiatives in their own way.”

Wicklow Ógra Shinn Féin will be hoisting an online public engagement on Tuesday 15th June at 8pm.

This will be a way for those who want to find out more about Ógra to come and hear speakers from local and National Politics, such as John Brady TD will be and Máiréad Farrell TD, speak about the opportunities that Ógra brings to county Wicklow.
