Weekly Update – Dr Cathal Berry TD

Hi Everyone, it’s been another busy week this week in Leinster House and around the constituency. Just sharing some of the things myself and the team have been working on –
🔹 Spoke to Taoiseach, Micheál Martin directly in the Dáil chamber about hospital waiting lists in Naas General Hospital and other hospitals around the country.
🔹 Met with Ministers Pascal Donoghue & Michael McGrath to advocate for better pay and conditions for members of the Defence Forces and more investment in bridges & schools in the constituency.
🔹 Spoke in the Dáil about the need for an Independent Airlift Capability for the Defence Forces, raised the Army Ranger Wing Allowance & spoke about the situation in Afghanistan.
🔹 The Regional Independent Group launched our Pre-Budget submission focusing on the key areas of regenerating regional towns and villages, housing, health, agriculture & supporting rural businesses.
🔹 Had an online meeting with members of the Muiríosa Foundation in Monasterevin and KARE Central Service in Newbridge.
🔹 Met with lots of constituents in both the Newbridge & Portarlington constituency offices to work on individual issues of concern for them.
As always, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me or a member of the team if we can assist you with any issues.
