Seamus McDonagh said: “I have never been afraid to directly confront what I believe are unfair laws and
taxes that have been forced on the people by a golden circle of business interests and connected families. They have run our
country for their benefit and our loss for far too long.
“I have two daughters and three grandchildren, all of whom live in Meath. For their sakes, and that of
our local communities, I want action to cut the massive mortgage debts that families are struggling under just because they
need a home to live in. If the billionaires can have debts written down or taken over by the State so can workers so that
our economy can grow again.
“I also believe we need to get tough on white collar criminals who destroy our children’s futures
with their dodgy dealings – it is time for corrupt bankers and politicians to do jail time, so that those who would
repeat their activities might think again.”
Seamus is a native of Wilkinstown and lives in Kells. As a teenager he was forced to leave his native county
and move to England to find work. In Birmingham he began working with the Irish community providing employment rights advice
to his fellow building workers.
Returning to Ireland in the late 1970s Seamus became active in campaigns demanding a fair deal for PAYE workers,
for the public
ownership of Ireland’s natural resources and against discrimination.
During the 1980s and 1990s Seamus was prominent in campaigns in Meath against proposed water charges. He is currently the chairman of the North
Meath Campaign Against the Household and Water Taxes (CAHWT).
