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.

Great day in Clon getting people registered to vote.

I was surprised to see how many people didn't know they had the right to vote in local elections.

Heading to Skibbereen tomorrow to help more get registered. We will be there from 3-4pm.

Hope to see some of you there!

Morning folks! Beautiful day for a registration drive! Catch us at Recorders Alley (next to O'Donovans) to get registered to vote. We'll be down there from 3 until around 4pm.

We'll also have some literature about the Social Democrats if you want to learn more about us and what we stand for. We'll also have some badges if you want to show your support for my campaign 😁

See you soon,
Evie.

Have 3,000 of these leaflets to drop through letter boxes. If anyone can help getting them distributed around West Cork please let me know! If you're out on your morning/evening walk and can drop some, that would be fantastic!

We will be holding a voter registration drive in Clon this Monday and in Skibb on Tuesday if anyone wants to pick up some literature to pass out in their areas.

On my way to #Skibbereen to help people get registered to vote. Remember you do not need to be an Irish citizen to get on the register.
Get your forms in your local council office, post office or garda station.
Deadline is Nov 25th!

Frozen to the bone but we had a great day in #clonakilty helping people to get registered to vote. So many non citizens didn't realise they have the right to vote for #LE19
Off to #Skibbereen tomorrow. Make sure you have your form in by the 25th!
