Fine Gael Party Leader Enda Kenny T.D., today (Wednesday)launched Young Fine GaelÕs college recruitment campaign to hit over 20 colleges throughout the country. ÒYoung people have been the hardest hit by Fianna FilÕs mismanagement of the economy. Fine Gael is offering them an alternative. ÒOur party wants a different direction for the country, one in which young people can see a bright future rather than one that will be mired in debt and uncertainty. ÒIt is apt that we launch this campaign on the first day that the Dil debates NAMA. This Û90 billion gamble will be placed more heavily on the shoulders of the young just as the tragedy of unemployment has laid waste to their hopes for the future. ÒShockingly, those between the ages of 18 and 25 make up one quarter of people on the Live Register. One hundred thousand of our young people are out of work. Half of all mortgages granted during the Ôboom yearsÕ were to those under 30. There are no bailouts or quick fixes being proposed for them.
ÒFine Gael has set out a alternative to NAMA, we have outlined a different direction for the third level sector, and, through our NewERA plan, Û11 billion in new investments creating 100,000 jobs. ÒFine Gael is offering change to young people. We welcome their involvement in politics and will encourage them to run for election. We had 60 young Councillors elected in the Local Elections and will strive to continue this success.Ó PIC:MAXPIX-NO FEE
