I want to be the next Taoiseach. So I owe everyone an honest proclamation of what I want for Ireland.

First, I will borrow from the brilliant words of the proclamation on Easter Monday 1916 – I, too, want to guarantee “religious and civil liberty, equal rights and equal opportunities to all… citizens”.

And I want and expect the government of Ireland “to pursue the happiness and prosperity of the whole nation and of all its parts, cherishing all the children of the nation equally”.
