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.

Spent the day reconnecting with other SocDems candidates as well as members of our campaign teams. It was fantastic and reminded me of what it is we as a party are trying to achieve.

A new vision for the kind of Ireland we want to be a part of. We all bring our own experiences and activism, our love of community and our passion for a fairer, equitable and more compassionate Ireland.

As always, childcare was provided on site, making this life possible for parents of young children like me.

Bring on the local and European Parliament elections in May!
