LEAS CHATHAOIRLEACH / vice chairperson

Eoin de Rosfort

I am the Leas-Cathaoirleach of Ógra Shinn Féin and Cathaoirleach of the Dublin Ógra structures.

I am passionate about ending the British occupation of our land, and bringing about socialism.

My name is Aaron O'Rourke. I am 21 years old and currently studying a Bachelor of Education degree in Dublin City University.

In that time I helped with the reestablishment of DCU Ógra Shinn Féin and I was the society’s first chair. That same year we passed a referendum in the university calling on the Students Union to support Irish Unity by 76%. I was first co-opted to the CNÓ in 2018 and elected back onto the committee in Galway in 2019. I am a huge advocate of the trade union movement and the left wing case for Irish Unity.

Adrian Gallagher

Adrian is from Rathmullan Co. Donegal. His political development hs been very much a product of the environment in which he grew up; hearing rebel songs and stories from a young age, and more so the devastation brought about by the financial crisis, particularly in the West of Ireland. As a result, he joined Ógra in 2017. He fundamentally believes that the ownership of the land, wealth and resources are essential for the Irish people to be free, and that the only fitting tribute to our patriot dead is a 32 County Socialist Republic. Adrian was elected to An Coiste Náisiúnta Óige in 2019.
