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.

Anybody fancy helping me put up a few of these tomorrow evening?

I'm putting up just 50 posters and I have SO many awesome plans to reuse them after the election.

Text 0834290752 if you can give two hours of your time tomorrow. If you bring some friends, it'll be less time again.

Ok that’s a bit scarey !

Exciting

Another fab day out on the campaign trail in Clonakilty. Even had one of our Galway candidates out with us today, John Crowley.

Lots of issues-
Traffic issues in town
Footpaths need repairing
Accessibility issues
Safety for children in estates
Affordable housing for single people
and much more

Looking forward to helping to sort all this out in FIVE WEEKS! 😱

If you have 2 hours one evening a week from now until May 24 please, please consider coming along.

Great afternoon, people hungry for change

This is a better crossover than the Avengers #DreamTeam

Lovely evening yesterday in Skibb for a canvas and some quality father-daughter time 💕

Great reception at the doors so far 😁 People are hungry for change! And change is what I'll bring to Cork County Council ✊

If you'd like to join us, drop leaflets or help put up some posters, please let me know!

I don't have a big political machine behind me like FF/FG/SF. I don't have unlimited resources. I am very much an underdog so any help would be greatly appreciated.
