Local Election Candidate for Athy

Samantha is a mother of four and a family carer for three of her children who have disabilities.

Samantha moved to Athy with her family in the boomtime as it was the nearest affordable place to Dublin to buy a home. Finding herself living far away from relatives, Samantha has worked hard to build relationships and develop a support network within the community.

Having two sons who are autistic and a daughter with a rare genetic syndrome has meant advocating for better services has become second nature to Samantha. She founded and ran the local Together for Yes group during the successful 2018 campaign to Repeal the 8th Amendment.

Samantha grew up in the UK moving to Ireland when she was 14 years old. She has a degree in agricultural science.

Samantha believes that everyone should have equal access to employment, education, housing and healthcare. She believes that our public representatives should be representatives for all the people and not just the few that can afford to pay for them.

Sickening 🤬

Yesterday, @SimonHarrisTD made a pledge to effectively eradicate Cervical Cancer within a generation.

Today, we learn National Cancer Registry of Ireland doesn't have the money to complete recommendations of the Scally report.
