Local Election Candidate for Rathfarnam-Templeogue

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.

Why mention time periods at all in the Constitution? Allow the Oireachras to legislate & give those fleeing domestic violence & abuse the chance to divorce more quickly than even two years.

When will we learn that the Constitution is not the place to deal with matters like this? The State really has got to stop treating us all like children.

Fine Gael think we should debate ‘rejoining’ the British Commonwealth and also this absolute clanger.

There are two kinds of homelessness. People who end up sleeping on the street or in hostels and which could be greatly reduced if we had a properly funded housing first policy.

The other is family homelessness. This is brand spanking new and is a direct consequence of Fianna Fáil crashing the country, austerity budgets of Fine Gael and Labour and a shift in policy by Fine Gael away from state provision of housing to the reliance on the private market to house families. Which has abjectly failed. Family homelessness is 100% preventable and only began to increase from 2013 on.

We have Fine Gael councillors objecting to family hubs and social housing across SDCC. Absolutely sickening to hear this nonsense talk.
