“I am delighted that so many women from different backgrounds will be coming together this morning to express their support for Emer Costello MEP. Emer is an outstanding candidate for Dublin in the European elections, who has always promoted women’s rights and equality issues, and has a strong track record on social inclusion.
“Many other women who can’t be here this morning, such as Independent Senator Katherine Zappone, have expressed their support for Emer’s candidacy for Europe.”
