He was jailed for his opposition to bin charges. As Cork co-ordinator of the Campaign for a Real Public Health Service he has led large protests against A&E cuts at the Mercy Hospital and the threat to close the Orthopaedic   Hospital. Mick also led opposition in Cork North Central to both Lisbon     referenda.

Mick Barry has provided a socialist opposition to the Fianna Fail/ Fine Gael/Labour pact on Cork City Council since his election in 2004.  If elected, Mick will be part of a strong bloc of United Left Alliance TDs in the next Dail.
