I had the pleasure of speaking in front of an outstanding group, both new and old members coming together to make a real difference and share new ideas.
The Green Party Convention showed that there is a real fire alive in our members, that we possess the raw energy needed to make a sustainable, efficient and more democratic Ireland.
With the fear being spread by US President Donald Trump, now is the time to stand up to those who inspire hate, now is the time for us to rally together and come up with real plans to tackle the issues that Ireland is facing.
We need ideas that benefit Ireland, ideas that tackle Brexit head on, plans that put Ireland in a green future, a plan that will make an island worth living in.
We are the resistance and the renaissance.
