Candidate for Dublin South-West

Carly was the SocDems national coordinator for the Repeal the 8th campaign and is passionate about creating a fair society and providing good quality public services. Carly spends her time campaigning for gender equality, disability rights, housing and education

Carly grew up in Cavan and has lived in Dublin for most of her adult life. Carly and her husband, who is from Perrystown in Dublin, moved to Firhouse with their two young children four years ago.

 

They sadly lost their family home to a vulture fund as a result of the recession, which led to Carly returning to education to study law and political science at Trinity College, having completed the Trinity Access Programme there.

South Dublin Co Co has let us know that they received our petition and because of public concern they will install a bin again shortly.

Thanks to everyone who signed and supported!
