Senator Ronan Mullen seeks re-election...

Dear friends,

Beatha agus sláinte! Please ignore and excuse this message if you have had some email from me directly over the last number of weeks. I am sending this email to contacts on an old list but there may be some overlap.

(If you haven’t heard from me in a while, maybe you might let me know and I’ll add you to my newer list. I try not to plague people but I might send you an occasional message if that’s alright.)

Ballots are now arriving by registered post for the Seanad election on the NUI graduate panel. I am seeking re-election and I would be very grateful for any support you can give. There are 27 candidates running. It will be a tight race and every single vote counts. The deadline for completed ballots to reach the NUI is 11 a.m. on 27th April.

If you are a registered NUI graduate voter, please consider me for your No. 1 vote or highest available preference. I would also be very grateful if you saw fit to mention me to NUI graduates among your family, friends and colleagues.

Please see for more information about my political values and proposals.

Since my election in 2007 I have sought to test policy and legislaton for how it impacts on human dignity in particular. I introduced the first ever Oireachtas debate on the need for better quality end-of-life care in our hospitals, nursing home and at home. Working with organizations like Ruhama, I have been vocal on the issues facing victims of human trafficking. I introduced the Stem Cell Research (Protection of Human Embryos) Bill – legislation which would protect human embryos while supporting highly promising adult stem cell research.

I believe that investment in education is critical to our social and economic recovery. I favour state support for denominational and other schools – the key value being respect for person, and for the values and preferences of parents and communities.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.

With best wishes. Beir bua agus beannacht,



Rónán Mullen
Senator, NUI Graduate Panel
Leinster House
Dublin 2
