Paul is the Socialist Party MEP for Dublin, having replaced Joe Higgins in 2011 after his election to the Dail. Only accepting a typical wage of a young worker, he is a leading critic and active campaigner against the government and Troika’s austerity agenda and the undermining of democratic rights.Learn More
Austerity is not a mistaken policy implemented by the government and the Troika – it is a means to transfer massive amounts of wealth from working people around Europe to the super-rich.

Unlike the parties of austerity, Paul’s election campaign relies on people like you volunteering to help. If you can help in any way, please let us know.
