Another great website for finding out what your TDs do on your behalf is Kildare Street.com It is a non-partisan website which aims to make it easy for people to keep tabs on their elected representatives in the Houses of the Oireachtas. You can find more about the good people who run this site for free here.

So do you know your local TDs? Have you been to one of there clinics or contacted them in the last 6 months about a local/national issue you may have had. Do you find it easy to contact them? Do you prefer face to face meetings at their clinics? Or do you prefer on-line engagement?

Listed below are the contact details for your 5 TDs on-line & off-line. Very basic but going to work on getting it onto  a more user friendly PDF when I get the time & learn how. What do you think? Is this helpful? What other information would you like to see from your TDs? How would you like them to communicate with you? And how often?

It was difficult enough putting this information together as had to find each individual TDs website & details of clinics. Some were not easy to locate. Interesting only one TD is on Twitter & just two are on Facebook. Does that matter?
