Saoirse McHugh has officially left the Green Party

Saoirse McHugh has left the Green Party.

The activist rose to prominence after an appearance on Prime Time during the European election campaign, where she spoke passionately about the need for reform of the Direct Provision system.

McHugh said that she would leave the party if it went into government with either Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael.

“The reasons I have left are obvious,” McHugh tweeted out today.

“I joined the Greens with the hope of furthering the cause of climate justice… The PfG that has been agreed on is a terrible document,” she continued.
