Today in Dáil Éireann at Leaders' Questions I raised the issues of Homelessness with Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government Simon Coveney. Many families and individuals are living only one crisis away from homelessness and it is a issue which affects all areas of our society.
Those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness are some of the most exposed and vulnerable members of our society.

The importance of Voting:
The word “democracy” is Greek for “Government by the people.” The act of voting is at the heart of democracy. It is making a choice on the kind of government that you have.
Voting connects citizens with their political process. Voting helps choose our leaders. The simple act of marking a ballot paper tells our leaders what we think about decisions that affect our lives. Voting connects us to one another as citizens. By expressing our point of view, we help our democracy work. By agreeing or disagreeing with our leaders we show that the political system can accept differing points of view and can resolve them.
A democratic community can only survive if its citizens see participation in the political process as a duty and a responsibility. By Voting, each citizen participates in a process that might improve our country.
What Ireland needs is greater participation in the democratic process, especially by young people in the political process. We also need to persuade every citizen that taking part in the system is not a luxury – it is your duty as an Irish citizen.
Having outlined how important it is to vote, here are just some reasons
