Local Election Candidate for Clonakilty-Skibbereen

Evie Nevin is a writer and disability rights activist living in Clonakilty, Co Cork.

Evie founded and ran Disabled People Together for Yes during the successful 2018 campaign to repeal the Eighth Amendment. She traveled all over Ireland addressing public meetings on how the Eighth disproportionately affected people with disabilities in accessing abortion services.

Since then Evie has continued to speak in public and to the media about how people with disabilities and chronic pain are affected by various aspects of society.

Evie was brought up in Ballincollig and moved to Clonakilty at 17 with her parents and sister. She attended Griffith College and has a BA in Journalism and Media Studies. Other qualifications include diplomas in Forensic Science, Criminology, Web Design and Digital Marketing from CMIT.

She is mother to Alex and Olivia and married to Martin. Evie and her children suffer from a rare genetic disease called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome of which there is no expertise in Ireland.

Evie believes that everyone has the right to adequate healthcare regardless of their income, the right to a home that they can call their own and that everyone has a part to play in protecting the environment and improving accessibility for people with disabilities.

๐Ÿ„ Beef farming is our largest meat sector, making up 21% of all food and drink exports from Ireland.

๐Ÿ„ We are the 5th largest beef exporter in the world and the largest exporter of beef in Europe.

๐Ÿ„ It's important that this industry is sustainable and that means paying farmers a fair price for their produce.

๐Ÿ„ For every โ‚ฌ10 spent on Irish beef at a supermarket the retailer get โ‚ฌ5.20, the processor gets โ‚ฌ2.90, and the farmer gets โ‚ฌ2.00.

๐Ÿ„ Farmers are asking for a price increase from โ‚ฌ3.45 per kilo to โ‚ฌ4 per kilo of beef.

๐Ÿ„ Importing beef from abroad has a much bigger carbon footprint than using local beef.

๐Ÿ„ Irish beef is Quality Assured and to a very high standard.

๐Ÿ„ If this issue has affected you and your farm please get in touch through PM.

Asna St, Clonakilty is in serious need of a complete overhaul and redevelopment.

The footpaths are an absolute disgrace. I wouldn't be surprised if someone has fallen down there!

It is not accessible for wheelchair users. The street feels so run down and is filthy. It is not in keeping with the rest of the town.

I have reached out to Cork County Council asking to give this street more attention.

And the roads, the whole of west cork roads are a shambles.

What heavy vehicles are doing this damage and how can they be stopped

Delighted to see a big company like Lidl standing up to racism! โœŠ

For those who haven't been following, Gemma O'Doherty took issue with a black man being part of an Irish family (The Ryans) in a Lidl advert.

Irish people come in all shapes and sizes, colours and creeds. In fact, according to Dan Bradley, professor of population genetics at Trinity College Dublin, the first Irish people would not have had the light skin that we have generally painted them with, but would, in fact, have had much darker, maybe even black skin and blue eyes.

One thing I love about West Cork is it's diversity. The blend of cultures has made it truly a unique and wonderful place.

Men will refuse to acknowledge preferred pronouns as theyโ€™re โ€œtoo confusingโ€ but will suddenly decide to rename their best friend of 10 years โ€œHaircutโ€ until the day he dies, simply because he got a haircut.

Calling all optimists! We know we can do much better. We'd love your help to build a more fair and sustainable future for all. ๐Ÿ’œ
