Local Election Candidate for Balbriggan

Garrett is the founder and executive director of the educational charity Show Racism the Red Card in Ireland.

The Charity engages 20,000 young people per year to challenge racism by providing educational resources and developing intercultural activities to encourage people, including young people, to challenge racism.

Previously Garrett worked as a Social Care Worker, Probation Officer and an Outreach Worker with the Dublin Simon Community. Garrett assisted people in accessing services to help prevent and move out of homelessness.

Garrett has lived in Balbriggan since 2004 with his wife Iryna and their two children. He has been heavily involved with the Cardy Rock resident’s association, working alongside other members to improve the area and represent the interests of the estate.

Garrett has campaigned on issues such as the anti-water charges, the Marriage Equality referendum and most recently the Repeal the 8th campaign. He is member of the local tidy towns committee and is involved in other community groups in the area.

In his spare time Garrett hangs out with his family, walks his dog Bardik, plays five aside (badly) and still purchases and reads the newspaper.

all residents? even students here for 8 months? that surely can't be right. I couldnt vote in Australia when i was there for a year

for local elections the franchise is very generous. it is the case that many do not register though

only Irish and UK citizens can vote in general election. EU citizens can vote in EU and local elections. Only Irish citizens can vote in referenda.

Over 5,000 houses vacant in Fingal, according to Simon Community in 2016. This Wednesday at 7:30pm, I am hosting a public meeting on Solutions to the Housing Crisis because while there are many vacant homes, there are many people in need of homes.https://www.facebook.com/events/915048245358362/ ...

just had a visit here today. Amazing that a Soup Kitchen is in Balbriggan but from my conversations I learned of the need locally for this service. Between 50-100 people call in every day for food and meals. Such a great effort by a team of 20 volunteers from the area but what an indictment on government that this is needed.

“Wear Red Day”: Fingal Co Council

· Swords &Blanchardstown offices to be lit up RED
· Information Packs (leaflets and posters) have been forwarded to the Community Centres
· Communications Officer will take photos on the day @garrettmullan

Here we go again - auction politics. Will @campaignforleo cut taxes before or after he deals with 1M people on waiting lists for health services, or the rental crisis, or the 10,000 people who are homeless, or the fact that we have the worst childcare supports in Europe?
