CREED WELCOMES RESOUNDING CORK NORTH WEST “YES” TO LISBON

EU FlagFine Gael, Cork North West T.D. Michael Creed has welcomed the strong Yes vote in last Friday’s Lisbon Treaty Referendum. Speaking after the people of Cork North West gave a resounding 69.5% endorsement to the YES campaign Deputy Creed said: “This is a very mature and informed decision. I am delighted that the vast majority of people voted on the issue at hand in spite of the efforts of some to distract them. I am also pleased that people have avoided the temptation to use this critical Referendum as a means of punishing the government for its incompetence and mismanagement”.

“Looking at a selection of tallies from around the Constituency it is clear that there was universal support for Lisbon from both rural and urban communities”.  Yes/No Rockchapel 85/25  Meelin 180/13  Freemount 123/48  Newmarket 103/72  Dromagh 67/17  Ballydesmond 197/33  Kilcorney 92/49  Kanturk 98/50

“While these tallies are a rough estimate it is clear that there is a significant Yes vote in all these communities”.
