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.

At 12.30 today at the Garden of Remembrance a rally will take place to support our nurses and midwives.

Unfortunately I can not make it up due to illness, but I am there in spirit.

Hope there is a massive turnout and that our nurses and midwives know they have massive support from the public.

The wonderful thing (sarcasm) about having Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is all the new symptoms that arise out of the blue with no explanation. Today's new symptom is having blurred vision in one eye out of nowhere. Yes Minister Harris, it's just a rheumatological issue πŸ™„
