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.”
