It has been a difficult start to 2021, and although we are still coping with restrictions, we are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel as the Covid-19 vaccine is rolled out over the next few months. Brighter days are ahead.
As Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, it has been my priority to ensure the jobs, livelihoods, and businesses of those who work in these industries are supported as best as they can be.
I have been heavily engaging with organisations and representative groups across each sector, and I have been working hard throughout the pandemic to offer supports where possible and help alleviate some of the pressure which these sectors are facing.
Throughout this pandemic, I have moved my fortnightly constituency clinics online. Whilst I do miss meeting you in person, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any issues you would like to discuss with me and would like to book an appointment.
As your local Green T.D., I will continue to do my utmost to represent the people and communities of Dublin Rathdown, placing climate and social justice at the heart of everything I do.
Finally, my thoughts and condolences are with anyone who has suffered a loss during this difficult time.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-ananmacha.
As always, please don’t hesitate to get in touch at any stage if I can be of assistance.
Le gach dea-ghuí,
Catherine Martin T.D.
