Cavan’s Claiming Our Future wants to see what lies behind the pretty posters and scripted policies of Cavan’s political candidates in the general election this February 16th. We want to invite YOU, the public to hear, challenge and debate the many local candidates running in our constituency to better inform ourselves as to who we should vote for in what is likely to be one of the most important elections in Irish history. Included will be a short presentation by candidates, a debate between these potential representatives of YOUR interests and a Q&A session to wrap up. All are welcome this Feb 16th Hustings at Cavan Town Hall from 7.30pm to 9pm.
