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.

In that six years I have had to go to London three times for tests, physiotherapy and treatment. In that six years my family and I have spent approximately €20,000 on healthcare 1/

1/ Lots of confusion from people the last few days. No, I'm not running in #GE2020 unfortunately. I had really wanted to but, it just wasn't my time. I will still continue working to try to make West Cork and Ireland a more equal place. But there is good news..
