IFGH Presenter: Minister Joe Costello

Category:
February 26, 2012

Minister Costello is a hard-working and committed public representative. He has made a significant contribution to national politics. He has contributed to all major debates in Dáil Éireann. As a member of the Labour Party Front Bench, Joe works closely with Eamon Gilmore and other Labour colleagues seeking a better future for Ireland. He has served as spokesperson on Justice, Education, Defence, European Affairs and Human Rights. He has developed a range of policy documents in all of these areas on behalf of the Party.

Health and Education are of major concern to Joe. He has maintained a vigil at the Mater Hospital between 1pm and 2pm every Saturday for the last seven years to highlight the appalling conditions which the sick and the elderly have to endure in the Accident and Emergency units of our hospitals.

Over the years, Joe has worked with residents and community groups on a range of issues including community development, planning, housing, transport, sporting and cultural matters. As Chairman of the Supply Control Committee of the North Inner City Drugs Task Force, Joe vigorously opposed the drug barons who brought such misery to communities in the North Inner City. In recent years he was to the fore of the successful campaign to close the Head Shops in Dublin.
