In the last few days thousands of people have been out working incredibly hard for a "Yes" vote on Lisbon this Friday. I want to thank all of you.
People have donated their time. Many have donated money.
They've joined the campaign because they believe that Ireland and Europe are stronger together. They got involved because they wanted to fight back at Coir, UKIP and Libertas' campaigns.
The Taoiseach was out campaigning for a "Yes" vote in Galway this weekend, talking to people, hearing their concerns and working tirelessly for a positive result on Friday. We recorded a short video of his trip.
Watch it now:
The Taoiseach, campaigning in Galway
The polls are encouraging. But we can't take anything for granted. There are still a lot of undecided voters and we need to make sure that hard campaigning translates into results at the ballot box. In the last few days, I've been out canvassing in four constituencies and I've seen that the more we get our message out to people, the stronger the "Yes" vote will be. Our case is very strong.
But there's still much to do. This battle for Ireland's future is still yet to be won - and you have an important role to play in it. Watch the Taoiseach out campaigning and remind your family, friends and colleagues to vote "Yes" on Friday.
We have only a couple of days before Ireland goes to the polls. We all need to make sure we do all that we can to ensure we get the right result.
As the Taoiseach said earlier this week: "This is not a campaign where people can stand on the sidelines. If you believe that Ireland and Europe work better together then play a role in the final days of this campaign".
We can't do this without you. Get involved and, most importantly, remember to vote "Yes" on Friday.
Micheál Martin, TD
P.S. If you want to support our Lisbon campaign, but aren't able to get out on the streets canvassing, please consider making a small donation - every Euro will help us make our positive case for "Yes".
TO WHOM IT CONCERNS
I visited your website earlier this year to leave a comment; I DID NOT SUBSCRIBE TO ANY MAILING LIST, and so your repeated abuse of this email address is 100% contrary to the Data Protection Act.
If you wish me to take this further, I will; I am under no obligation to click an "unsubscribe" link, and I request that you IMMEDIATELY REMOVE ME FROM YOUR MAILING LIST.
As for Fianna Fail campaigns and requesting that I "watch it now"; forget it! I would be SEVERELY interested in watching the Taoiseach FIRE (not "request the resignation of" or call "honourable") the useless cheats that have wasted OUR money (incidentally something that was also done with useless e-Voting machines - remember those ? ) and those who screwed up OUR economy. Sean Fitzpatrick, Rody Molloy, Bertie Ahern and John O'Donoghue for starters.
So rather than patting yourselves on the back and uploading self-congratulatory videos, I'd prefer if Fianna got their fingers out of the backsides of vested interests and their buddies and actually did something worthwhile that was in the interests of the ordinary people of this island.
Better still, do the entire country a favour and call a GENERAL ELECTION
Your party had your chance to be seen to do something worthwhile in the 10 years that this country actually had some money, and your party screwed it up, making the impact of the global downturn 100 times worse; and your party takes absolutely no responsibility or action to ensure that things are fixed.
I trust that I will not be receiving any more of your pointless emails.
P.S. If you GENUINELY thought that I matters (as per your email's subject line) you would be ensuring that I can earn enough of a living to survive, and not ensuring that those who couldn't do their jobs - Fianna Fail included - have more money and pensions than I could ever dream of having.
