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.
