Rathfarnam-Templeogue

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.”

Application refused for the latest amendment to planning permission at the Traders/McHugh site. While this amendment was certainly more welcome than the previous one, parking and over looking were still huge concerns for many residents living nearby.

Hoping that the original application will now go ahead, offering a good mix of housing and local services and shops, well needed in our local community. As always, this decision can be appealed to An Bord Pleanala but I am hoping to make contact with the developer to get a sense of their next steps. I’ll update as I hear anything further.

My thanks to Ed O’Loughlin and the New York Times for including me as part of this piece. Government try & continue to spin this housing crisis but the truth is there for all to see.

That this crisis is now an international story is yet another stain on @FineGael legacy. Housing is not a commodity. We all deserve so much better than this. Stable and affordable housing is a right we must fight for together.

The New York Times... Nice! 💜 Well done, it’s an excellent, important read.

And this government can’t solve it , they need to get real and see how so many of our citizens are forced to live. They have let the vulture funds rob us of our heritage and homes. They need to get the courts to step up and prevent the evictions of families from their homes. Even people who have paid their agreed mortgages are been evicted as the Vultures want the full amounts paid and are NOT willing to extend the terms. People have to deal with faceless people who manage the mortgages for them (like Link) you can’t get to meet the owners and they are true VULTURES. Shame on them and shame of this GOVERNMENT 👎

Very happy to have completed training on Social Welfare Law with Professor Gerry White and the Mercy Law Resource Centre who work with the most vulnerable in our society and deserve our support. The Social Welfare system can be complex and too often difficult for people to navigate. Knowledge is power. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. ... See MoreSee Less
