Ronan Mullen campaign

Ronan Mullen is running for re-election to the Seanad on the NUI graduate panel and would be very grateful for your help over the coming weeks. And for your No 1 vote!

Ballot papers go out by registered post on 21st March and voters must return them to NUI before 11 a.m. on 27th April.

As an NUI graduate you may not know how to get your vote. Ronan can help you on that. Read below

By the way … whatever the talk of abolishing the Seanad, it will operate for at least one more term. I would like to see the Seanad reformed, not removed. If re-elected, I will engage with new TDs and Senators on a range of issues affecting our country – in particular the human dignity issues on which I have worked over the last few years.

I can post you a printed-off section of the NUI register. For example, I can give you a printed list of:

 ·        all graduates with addresses in [Name a County]

·        all graduates with addresses in [Name a Town]

·        all graduates with addresses in [Name a Townland or Street]

·        all graduates with a particular [surname]

·        all graduates with a particular [degree]

·        all graduates with a particular [year of graduation].


NOTE: The NUI Register does not identify the particular college which a graduate attended.


Finally, I can email you a searchable copy of the NUI register on Excel to allow you check on computer whether certain friends and contacts are listed. 

A list of the NUI colleges is printed below.

FACTSHEET: Who is eligible to vote for the NUI Panel in Seanad Elections? 

Those eligible to vote in the Seanad election are graduates of the NUI universities and colleges who are:

(a) registered with the NUI;


(b) registered at their correct address.

However, a large proportion of NUI graduates are either not registered to vote or are registered at the wrong address. The NUI are happy to accept changes of address up to the time the ballots are posted out – so please get in touch if you wish to check at what address you or your contacts are listed.
