Chris MacManus MEP takes 14 year old fisherwoman’s fight to the heart of European Parliament

Sinn Féin MEP Chris MacManus is to host 14 year old fisherwoman Muireann Kavanagh and her family in the European Parliament, Strasbourg on Wednesday 24th April.

Muireann Kavanagh is a young fisherwoman from the island of Arranmore, County Donegal and has been vocal on the need to ensure a future for young people in coastal and fishing communities. She is leading a fight for fair play for fishing communities, to ensure that they are not abandoned by EU policy making.

Her own experience of being denied fishing rights in her local community has inspired her passionate fight, which will now be brought to the very heart of the European Parliament. 

The teenager made headlines when her handwritten letter to the Fisheries Minister was widely circulated on social media, and her story was highlighted in a European Parliament speech by Chris MacManus MEP.

The Midlands Northwest MEP is committed to delivering the change that Muireann and the wider fishing community desperately need to see delivered.

MacManus and Kavanagh will take part in a series of engagements with a number of high-ranking MEPs who work on Regional Development and Fisheries, where she will make her case directly to senior EU figures and continue her fight for justice.
