TD for Dublin North-West, co-leader and co-founder of the Social Democrats

First elected to the Dáil in 1992, Róisín has been re-elected at every General Election since – giving her over 25 years’ experience in national politics.

A former primary school teacher with a degree in Economics and Politics, Róisín has throughout her career been particularly vocal on social justice issues, healthcare in all its forms, and good governance.

As Minister of State for Health, Róisín resigned her position in 2012 on grounds of principle, refusing to support what she saw as poor policy decisions.

Róisín is passionate about accountability and fair distribution of resources.

Under Róisín’s leadership, the Social Democrats have been at the heart of developing a 10-year vision to transform the Irish Health System. The Sláintecare plan is Ireland’s version of the UK’s NHS.

The banners go up across the city in advance of #RaiseTheRoof on #Oct3rd @irishcongress @forsa_union_ie @ConnectUnion @UniteunionROI @CWU #HomesForAll
