Former Sinn Fein T.D. Peadar Tóibín has been in Wicklow promoting his new political party Aontú as part of a series of meetings taking place around the country.
A public meeting has taken place in the Royal Hotel in Bray.
Deputy Tóibín says they’ve already received a lot of support from many people from across the political divide, whom he says are frustrated with the leaderships of their parties.
He has also revealed two Wicklow Councillors have already joined.
