Priorities for Young Ireland

Today (Monday, 15 December), Young Fine Gael (YFG) launched a policy document entitled Priorities for Young Ireland. In this document, YFG detail their priorities for young people in the Budget and government policy in general.

YFG President, Eric Keane, stated: "Young people are amongst the hardest hit by the recession and the most recent figures show that 18% of those on the live register are under the age of 25.

"In his State of the Nation address, an Taoiseach stated that Government's policy was aimed towards creating: 'a country where our young people can stay at home to build their future here, rather than moving away'.

"We support all actions taken by the Government in order to stem youth unemployment but we believe more than one old sacred cow will have to be sacrificed along the way.

"In this document we state what we believe needs to be done and highlight the need to tackle head-on the challenges that lie ahead, especially related to the Croke Park Agreement."
