Carly lives in Greenhills with her husband and two young children.

They lost their family home to a vulture fund in 2013 as a result of the recession, which led Carly to return to education to study law and political science at Trinity College, having completed the Trinity Access Programme there. Her lived experience and activism is what brought Carly into politics.

Carly has campaigned for many years on the ongoing housing crisis, children’s disability services, funding for IVF, access to education as well as issues around poverty, community building and inequality.

Carly was the SocDems national coordinator for the Repeal the 8th campaign. She is passionate about creating a fair society and providing good quality public services.

“I believe in a fair society, good quality public services, choice of schools, affordable housing and I want to see an end to harmful austerity measures that have hurt so many of us.”

This will affect some parts of Clonadalkin in South Dublin Co Co. I will be asking Irish Water for to establish an inquiry into this that can give both an explanation as to how 600,000 households could be affected like this and to demand that the necessary actions are taken to ensure it is rectified and cannot happen again in the future.

Bus Connects have published more information today on their website www.busconnects.ie. You can also check out how the amended plans might affect you using this link:
routemapper.busconnects.ie/route-mapper

We will spend time over the next while looking into the amended proposal and feeding back into the NTA.

Our goal is to be able to support change that will provide excellent public transport links across and into the city, that will support a reduction on car reliance, that will make cycling and walking safer and limit the number of trees that would need to be removed in order to accommodate reform.

We also are keen to ensure people with disabilities are properly accommodated and villages and small businesses don’t suffer. It is vital that all voices are heard.

Every person in the community is entitled to have their say and details on how to do that are contained below.

At midnight, the time will finally be Nai. A huge moment for our brothers and sisters. I want to pay tribute to all of the activists that have worked so hard to achieve this. To have both brought in together is just wonderful though it’s fair to say not by the most ideal way. But look it. Incredible and overwhelming all in equal measure. Oh there’s that word again. EQUAL.

We'll bring Dara Quigley’s case to the Oireachtas Justice Committee tomorrow. Dara took her own life after CCTV images which were held by An Garda Síochána were shared 125,000 times.

Will you raise your voice for Dara? #Justice4Dara
