I’m Richard Terry, the Social Democrats Local Election Candidate for Carrigaline.
I live in Passage West where I’m taking a year out from teaching to be a stay-at-home dad to my young daughter.
I have 13 years experience in secondary education. As a teacher, teaching Maths, History and Applied Maths; as a member of my school’s board of management; and as a committed trade unionist.
That broad experience, of science, of the humanities, of community, of activism, of parenthood, has left me with a particular set of skills, and perspectives on how local government can help improve the quality of life of people. I believe in finding sensible, evidence driven solutions to our community’s problems.
I chose to run because I want to ensure a fair quality of life for the people of Cork and to ensure that another generation of young Irish people is not lost to emigration because they cannot find that quality of life here.
