POBLACHT NA H EIREANN (Word Version)
POBLACHT NA H EIREANN
THE PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT
TO THE PEOPLE OF IRELAND
We the children of Glengurt N.S. Tournafulla, enjoy a free Irish republic thanks to the bravery, pride and sacrifices of our ancestors and the leaders of the 1916 Rising. We must stand up for what we believe in and truly deserve. We must fight for our rights so that all citizens of Ireland are treated equally and respectfully.
Homelessness is a growing problem in Ireland today. Families including children are losing their homes. Everyone in Ireland is entitled to a house, a bed and daily food. It is everyone’s responsibility to try to help. The government needs to find a long term solution to this problem so that everyone feels safe and cared for.
We believe that everyone in Ireland deserves a job, a fair wage and proper working conditions.
We should strive to have an efficient and immediate health care system where people can be seen quickly by a consultant in hospital. All citizens, young or old, should be treated with respect and kindness in hospitals.
We are lucky to be able to enjoy in Ireland a relatively clean and healthy environment. We must ensure that future generations can enjoy it also. Therefore we must use more renewable sources of energy.
It is important to keep our Irish culture and traditions alive so future generations can enjoy it for themselves too. We respect the right of Irish people to speak the Irish language.
We endeavour for peace in our country especially regarding recent gang violence. We recognise the right of everyone to live in harmony and peace with each other.
In the past during the famine years, we were welcomed into other countries so we now should welcome refugees with open arms and help them feel at home in Ireland.
Signed on behalf of the children
