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.
Joe Higgins TD, Socialist Party
