LaoisToday Podcast: Sinn Féin poll topper one year on from General Election triumph

Sinn Fein TD Patricia Ryan

This interview with Kildare South Sinn Fein TD Patricia Ryan was broadcast initially on February 12, 2021. 

On this week’s episode of the LaoisToday Podcast, we’re delighted to be joined by Sinn Féin TD Patricia Ryan.

Patricia represents the Kildare South constituency in Dáil Eireann, a constituency that takes in a large part of Laois, including Portarlington, Killenard and Ballybrittas.

Though based in Monasterevan, Patricia is a Laois woman having grown up near Ballybrittas and gone to primary school in Rath and secondary school in Portarlington.

It’s exactly a year since Patricia topped the poll in Kildare South in last year’s General Election.

In this interview she chats about that experience, the controversy about her holiday during the campaign and why she’s not one bit impressed with the current Government.

You can listen to the interview in full below on Soundcloud or on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

The LaoisToday Podcast is brought to you in association with iCashco, market leaders in automated cash handling.
