Contact Your TD

Write, Email or Phone Your TD

A simple guide regarding contacting the public representatives in your constituency: 

It is better to visit him/her at his clinic than a phonecall; a phonecall is better than a letter; a letter is better than an email. But the most important thing is that you do make your views known to him / her, if they don't  hear from constituents, they think its a dead issue.

We have found that automated emails are not the most effective way of communicating and we encourage you to write your own email to the public reps in your own constituency. 

Here are the details for TDs in this current Dáil

Suggested procedures for phoning your local politicians

  1. When you ring your local politicians, you may not get to speak to them on your first call. You may be asked to leave a message. Don't be deterred; he / she will ring you back.
  2. If he / she doesn't ring you back, ring him / her again. During holiday periods it is possible that your TD may not be keeping regular office hours, but keep trying.
  3. Introduce yourself, say where you live and state that you are a constituent
  4. Tell him/her that you are opposed to any further liberalisation of our abortion laws. 
  5. After a week, follow up your first call and recruit others
