Good Twitter, and average Facebook. Good effort with the blog, but all only in the last 30 days. The social media should be used during all the year – every year, not just 30 days before the election. It would have far more reach and effect if the activity would have been spread, as opposed the splash in the last month before the election. Perhaps the lesson here should be – start your online marketing on the day you get into the office, not a month before you (potentially) are leaving it.
About Eoin from his own site:
Eoin Ryan MEP has been serving the people of Dublin in various capacities for the last twenty years. First elected to Dublin City Council in 1985, he was appointed to the Seanad in 1989 and was first elected to the Dail in 1992. He served as Minister of State with responsibility for the National Drugs Strategy from 2000 to 2002. He was elected MEP for Dublin in the European elections in June 2004.
Eoin comes from a long tradition of public service. His late father, also Eoin Ryan, was a Senator for over thirty years and a senior figure in Fianna Fáil. His grandfather, Dr Jim Ryan, was one of the founding fathers of the State and represented the people of Wexford in the Dáil until 1968. Over a long and distinguished career, he served in various ministries including Minister for Agricultural Affairs and as Minister for Finance.
Over the last twenty years, Eoin has built upon that family record of public service:
As a member of Dublin Corporation, he promoted housing improvement schemes, particularly in the inner city. As a member of the Oireachtas, he focused on issues that matter to Dubliners, especially jobs and crime.
As Minister of State, he designed and implemented the largest investment plan in our history to combat the scourge of drugs in the most marginalized areas of the city and country as a whole.
Now, he serves his city in the European Parliament where he is a Member of the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee (ECON), the Development Committee and the Petitions Committee. He is also a Member of the Delegation for relations with India.
