Cóir to meet on November 1

Cóir’s message to their supporters after the result.  There’s more to come.


Just a quick update to thank you all and to give a few important messages.

  • Firstly, from everyone in Cóir, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the magnificent effort you put into making the second battle against Lisbon such a truly inspired campaign. You’ve been a brilliant, wonderful team. God Bless you all. We’ll be sending a full report later this week.
  • This is a grubby win for the elite, driven by fear and bullying. In the three days before the vote, the people were subjected to a media onslaught of Yes propaganda threatening ruin and isolation if people voted No.  It was unprecedented and utterly disgusting.
  • We succeeded, however, in raising several crucial issues, including, of course, the right to life, and the increased profile given to those issues in Lisbon 1 and 2 will make a big difference to our work going forward.
  • In the next five days we need to make sure that every Cóir poster is taken down or we will face VERY stiff fines that we can’t pay!  Can you ensure that EVERY poster you put up is taken down please? If you see a poster which you can’t take down please call us on 01 8746858 and we’ll get onto it.
  • We’re looking to have a special Cóir meeting on November 1st and will contact you with further details shortly.

God bless
