Dun Laoghaire

Dave Quinn has lived in Dun Laoghaire Monkstown for over 20 years, raising a family of four children. Dave is an engineering graduate from Trinity College and he started a computer software company in 1980 and he employs people locally.

Along with other local parents, he helped start The Red Door in 2001, a special school for children with autism. Dave is a Board member of Inclusion Ireland, the national organisation representing people with intellectual disabilities. Dave is also an active member of Basic Income Ireland advocating for basic income as a means to modernise our tax and social welfare systems for the benefit of all. He also sings in the local choir – badly!

Dave was drawn to the Social Democrats because of their values and their ambitions of equality, respect and fairness – all achieved through a prosperous economy that protects and nurtures the environment. Community well-being and inclusion are Dave’s priority. Dave believes in the 4 pillars to the State supporting respect and well-being for all citizens – education, health services, housing and income.

Dave joined the SocDems 3 years ago and is currently the Dun Laoghaire branch’s representative on the Social Democrats’ Council.

Time to get this on the Agenda.One in three family carers have a diagnosis of depression and almost two in three carers are now providing more than 100 hours of care per week.

Family Carers Ireland in collaboration with the College of Psychiatrists of Ireland and UCD School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Systems have launched a new report which reveals a severe disimprovement in the wellbeing of family carers over the past decade along with a huge increase in the burden of caring.

#DisabilityVotesCount #SocDems #LE19

If you have a disability, a friend or family member with a disability, or you simply care about equality, I strongly urge anyone in Dun Laoghaire to vote number 1 for @DaveQSocDemsDLR tomorrow. You'd do well to find anyone who genuinely cares more about this.
