Cavan Macra to host panel discussion with General Election candidates

In the lead up to the 2020 General Election, Cavan Macra na Feirme will be hosting a panel discussion featuring the candidates running in the region.

The event will take place next Wednesday, January 29, at Lower Lavey Community Centre and will commence at 8:00pm.

The chairperson of Cavan Macra, Caoimhe Cusack Smith, has explained that all Cavan and Monaghan election candidates have been invited.

She added: “The candidates will be given a chance to tell the audience about who they are, what they aim to do going forward and why people should vote for them.”

Following this, a questions and answers session will take place and attendees will be given the opportunity to ask the candidates questions.

The event aims to promote advocacy for youth and encourage informed choice-making when voting.

The county chairperson pointed out that Macra is an apolitical organisation and expressed optimism that all political candidates will be represented at the event.

All are welcome to attend the panel discussion.
