Local Election Candidate for Dublin South West Inner City

Jen Cummins lives in the Liberties with her husband and four children, who are aged between 7 and 14. Her parents were born and raised in this area, so her connection to the community goes back 75 years.

She works in the area of educational disadvantage with Ballymun Anseo School Completion Programme as the Co-ordinator. It provides programmes in school, after school and during the holiday period for children and young people at risk of early school leaving. .

 

She is a Doctoral Student in DCU looking at the effects that childhood trauma has on early school leaving. She is delighted to be working with Dr Paul Downes and Dr Jones Irwin on this piece of work which will look at young people’s experiences. Jen believes that everyone has the right to equality of access and equality of opportunity at all levels of education, from pre-school to third level.

Jen supports the residents of the South West Inner City by campaigning to have more green space for sporting, recreational and environmentally sustainable living and to have long term social and affordable housing in the area in order to continue building a thriving and cohesive community.

Paddy Monahan and Róisín Shortall speaking so eloquently about Educate Together and its importance for co-educational, equality based education. Schools where community and parents work hand in hand with the school community. My own children have/do attend(ed) an Educate Together School and I am extremely proud and honoured to be the Chairperson of this National Organisation which has been providing choice for parents and families did 40 years!

A full house last night. So much passion and outrage at the situation in dolphin park. My 5000 letters being delivered will help if people object to this proposal. We need more green space, we need to keep our children in sports, especially our teenage girls. Kevin’s Camogie numbers has doubled in the last few years. Well done to all he organisers, all of whom are volunteers!!Very large turnout at the public meeting tonight. Depth of feeling on this issue very clear from contributions from the floor. If like us you think this development is a really really bad idea you can do something about it.

Find out about how to prepare your planning objection here : www.lovedolphinpark.ie

* Please note that the most recent submission by the applicant has been deemed invalid by DCC. We expect a new planning reference number to be issued very soon, along with a new reference # and new deadline for objections.

We will keep you posted.
