Local Election Galway City Central

Sharon is an activist and feminist. Originally from Roscommon, she moved to Galway to attend college and fell in love with the city that she now calls home. She lives with her partner in Galway’s West End and works remotely as a customer support lead for an eCommerce platform. Her core values are based around workers rights, better housing protections, and social justice issues. She also aims to work on including more diverse voices in politics, especially at a local level where all residents have a vote and should be engaged.

While always interested in politics, the Marriage Equality campaign turned that interest into action. From there she joined Niall Ó Tuathail’s 2016 election campaign and the Social Democrats. She sat on the party’s first National Executive and is involved with her local Galway West branch.

She is a passionate pro-choice advocate and was the co-convener for Galway Together for Yes. She’s an LGBTQ+ rights campaigner and has been Galway’s Bi+ Ireland co-ordinator for the last number of years. She’s also worked with Galway Community Pride, LGBT Ireland, runs education and advocacy workshops, and was awarded the Activist Volunteer of the Year award at the 2017 GALAs for her work with the queer community.

Collaborating to better Galway city is one of Sharon’s main goals, and she wants to work with her entire community to acheive that for everyone.

We had a lovely gathering at the end of the count - lots of lovely friends, family, party members, supporters and our councillor elect Owen Hanley 💜

I’m a little lost for words, but pride and gratitude are what I’m feeling most right now. Thank you all for your support over the last few months, the help, the belief, and the continued support that’s been promised.

Galway hasn’t seen the last of me, don’t worry 😉
