Senator Averil Power raises RTE’s payout to Iona in the Seanad.

Fianna Fáil Senator Averil Power, is the only high profile woman in the Fianna Fáil parliamentary party (out of two) and probably the Fianna Fáil parliamentary party’s most socially progressive member ever. Dev will be turning in his grave! Being a woman in the Fianna Fáil PP sounds like a lonely place. The Senator has always been consistent and supportive of socially progressive issues. She steps up to the plate again here.

Apologise, as is pointed out in the comments, Senator Mary White is also a member of the Fianna Fáil PP. Forgive my mistake, Senator White’s profile is lower than Jim Walsh’s opinion on women and LGBT issues, so it was an easy error to make.

    Just to be clear on one point: Averil Power isn’t the only woman in the Fianna Fáil parliamentary party. Senator Mary White is also a member of Fianna Fáil, and has espoused numerous socially progressive issues – such as her stance on the abortion bill, and her support for shared maternity leave.

  2. Just to be clear – Senator Mary White is also a member of Fianna Fáil, and also has impeccable socially progressive credentials.
