I’m Ben Gilroy a member of Direct Democracy Ireland and candidate for East Meath constituency. I live in Johnstown and would be privileged to serve this community as a TD . My background is in law. I have been actively involved saving family homes, businesses and farms from Banks, Vulture funds and Financial vested interests.

I became a member Direct Democracy Ireland to try bring about this political process of giving the power back to the people through initiated referendum .  As a TD  I would maintain a constant dialogue with constituents, in the spirit of Direct Democracy, pushing their interests above all else.

HALT all evictions nationwide, work for a solution with banks.
REDUCE Family Home Mortgages: A substantial write down of personal debt to keep people in their homes and stimulate our domestic economy.
