Ronan Mullen: An independent politician who stands for more than getting elected

Rónán is a politician who stands up for the voiceless and vulnerable in our society. He is a man of principle who places honesty and integrity at the heart of his work.

Rónán says: “There is an increasing appetite for change in Irish politics. Support for independent politicians in particular continues to grow. People realise that political parties cannot be trusted to honour their election promises. There has been justified outrage over the failure to respect TDs’ and Senators’ deepest convictions on a range of issues.”

With Rónán, what you see is what you get: principled, courageous and clear politics. No spin, no broken promises, no bending to any party leadership.

Rónán has consistently defended the interests of our communities throughout his time in the Seanad. His track record shows that he has spoken out about a wide variety of issues and he intends to continue doing so.

We need a new style of politics, which has honesty at its core

Rónán says: “It is damaging to democracy when people are consistently lied to about jobs, hospitals and services. It reduces the engagement of citizens with issues, it leads to apathy and a hopelessness about politics. I know that feeling. I have felt betrayed by the political establishment in this country. I have felt let down.

When we are lied to over issues like abortion legislation, hospital closures and local services, we can be lied to about other things as well. A report in 2012 to the Department of Education recommended the closure of small schools. We are told by the Minister for Education that this will not happen. Can we believe him? Another issue is Eirgrid’s plan to erect massive pylons and high-voltage electricity lines across the country. How can we trust politicians not to ignore the communities affected and push ahead with this project?

Constant political betrayal should be a cause of great concern for all Irish people, irrespective of party allegiance.”
