Local Election Candidate for Birr

Clare is passionate about family, community and equality.

Clare through her work at local and national level withΒ Friends of BreastfeedingΒ has co-ordinated the provision of peer to peer support services for mothers and has advocated for gender equality in the workplace. Clare sees the great need to support all families at all stages of life and believes the key to building this support is through the development of local government.

Clare entered politics through her involvement with grassroots activism. She has campaigned with the Offaly Together for Yes group and parent support groups. She has developed an understanding and enthusiasm for how local government can address issues such as public housing, community, youth facilities and the provision of accessible healthcare at local level.

Clare lives in Banagher, Co. Offaly with her husband Ciaran and seven children. Having children with long term health issues and having come through financial difficulties in the past, Clare knows first-hand the struggles faced by young families in Ireland today.

Now that the polls have closed, I'd like to thank everyone involved with the campaign, my family, friends, team members, fellow candidates, Soc Dems party members and HQ, and all supporters I've met along the way.

Whatever happens at the count tomorrow, I know that we did our best, we were true to the ideals of the party and I was true to myself. I really appreciate all the support I've received over the last few months and especially over the last few days. Thanks to each and every one of you x

Best wishes!

Voting done and dusted πŸ™‚ your my number one ( you owe me cake ) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Did you hear about the politician who lost out on election by one vote? Don't let me be that guy! Please vote today, and when you do, I'd really appreciate your number one.

I'm coming from a relatively new, small party, without a big political machine or a big political family behind me. I need my community to get behind me today.

I haven't promised you the sun, moon and stars. I will promise to work hard, and to bring change. If you're tired of the same old-same old in Irish politics - give me a chance!
