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.

I wasn't elected to @fingalcoco but I did make a difference when highlighting the misguided policy of banning political parties using community centres for meetings.

The town of Balbriggan in north county Dublin, became synonymous with quality hosiery such as those pictured here, while Irish lace and crochet were internationally renowned in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The stockings pictured are hand beaded and embroidered silk stockings made by Smyth and Co. in Balbriggan, c. 1890 – 1900. “Made in Ireland” is stamped on the sole of both along with a “Real Balbriggan” trademark. #Clothinghistory #fashionhistory #NMI2019

The Way We Wore exhibition shows that although some Irish men and women from the 18th Century dressed in a traditional manner, particularly in remote rural areas, the majority of the population wore clothing which reflected changing fashions and was influenced by fashionable dress in other parts of Europe.

On display are examples of the dress and costume accessories worn by people who lived in relatively comfortable circumstances and could both aspire and afford to dress well. It is their clothing that tends to survive, and many items have lasted because they were treasured, put away and passed down through families; Not everyone had the luxury of clothes that could be put away and remain unused, with the result that the clothing of the less affluent rarely survives.

@Orla_Hegarty @gavinjdaly @CharlieFlanagan Absolutely right. In the Galway "bypass" case, the real driver is opening up yet another spine of ex-urban development to the west, north and east of the city. It would be much better to spend the €650 million earmarked for it on public transport, walking and cycling facilities.

Jeez I just put on 3 mins of Down to Business on @NewstalkFM oh god between the blatant business plugging abd Bobby Kerrs croaking, this programme is awful
