A Cork woman who is in a position similar to my own, having her name deleted from the voters register, has demanded to know why. She was turned away from the polling station on the 11th this month when she went to cast her vote in the local & european elections.

A resident of Blarney, she registered in 1999 and voted in her local polling station in the 2002 general election. Speaking to 96FM, she said she feels “disenfranchised” and has decided to go public on the issue after she failed to get any satisfaction from the city hall.

Eileen, I know exactly how you feel. Best of luck getting some sense out of the idiots in charge.
