Do you have an idea for a Better Ireland? – Fine Gael

25th August 2021 - Fine Gael Press Office

Fine Gael is asking people from across the country to submit their ideas as to how we can make Ireland a better place for all, with the winning entrant securing a virtual meeting with An Tánaiste Leo Varadkar to discuss the proposal.

Launching the Better Ireland initiative, An Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said, “I’m looking forward to hearing from people up and down the country on how they think we can make Ireland a better place to live, work, raise children, receive an education, start a business and grow old.

“It might be a major policy initiative that will be completely transformative and change our country for the better. It might also be something smaller, that would make a real difference at a local and community level.

“Whatever your idea is, we really want to hear it. The winning entrant will have an opportunity to meet with me and pitch the idea over a video call – and you’re welcome to bring your friends and colleagues along as well.

“The entry process couldn’t be simpler; log onto, describe your idea in a maximum of 250 words and submit it online. Anyone over the age of 18 who is a resident in Ireland is eligible to apply.

“I want to hear from as many people as possible, from a diverse range of backgrounds, occupations, areas etc. The more ideas we receive from you, the better.

“Tell your friends, families and neighbours about the initiative and encourage younger people in your life to have a think about it as well. Entries are open now so log onto the website and get your ideas in,” An Tánaiste concluded.
