Here are the Twitter accounts of all the TDs in Leinster House


Kudos to Nialler9 for telling it like it is and calling on the Irish government to deliver a roadmap for the live music sector – an industry that has been well and truly left on the shelf during Ireland’s post-pandemic reopening.

As he put it, “Dancing is banned. Live music is a criminal offence. We have actually gone backwards, while we watch Irish musicians go to England to perform at festivals already with no restrictions. How ludicrous is this going to get?”

With that in mind, below is a list of the Twitter handles of each member of the current Dáil. 

If you feel that the live music sector has been left behind, and that the time for action has come, contact your local TDs, put pressure on them. Ireland’s live music industry is on the verge of cracking.

Together, we can’t let that happen.
