Community at it's best. Well done to our Skerries Balbriggan rep Garrett Mullan for helping bring people together.Heartwarming to see residents of Balbriggan unite in a vigil to stand in solidarity with all those affected by the terror attacks in New Zealand. Members of the Annur Islamic Foundation Balbriggan joined with locals of other faiths and none, to show our desire to live together as one peaceful community where our similarities are more important than our differences ...

We need to support Ken's good work on Fingal County Council too. We regularly hear parents and teachers calling out the lack of adequate support for children with special needs.As the Social Democrats local election candidate for Ballinasloe Municipal District, I have always campaigned for strong support for people with Special Needs and disabilities and I have now endorsed proposals made by the Disability Federation of Ireland.

“I have signed up to be an advocate for people with Disabilities if elected to Galway Co. Council in May.
The Disability Federation of Ireland want a focus on three simple things:

(1) Accessibility – Make all public services open and accessible for people with disability
(2) Participation – Ensure the participation of people with disabilities on local decision-making structures
(3) Planning – Make sure Galway Co. Council publishes an implementation plan for Co. Galway for the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities by 2020.

If elected in May, I am promising to prioritise each of these key requests.

“In Galway County, 13% of the population, or 22,523 people, have at least one disability. We know from the latest Census that the vast majority of these residents have a chronic illness or difficulties with basic physical activities. Yet, supports to help integrate people with physical difficulties are seriously lacking in our county council.

“On a practical level, a Council who adopts these calls will be focusing on accessible playgrounds, ensuring there is enough housing and parking for people with Special Needs and disabilities, and designing street-scapes so that people with Special Needs and disabilities are not hindered by parked cars, bins, street lights and sign posts.”

“I believe a clear commitment to people with Special Needs and disabilities should be written into Galway Co. Council’s next County Development Plan, and if elected I will lead the charge on this.”

“ As a Father of a young Girl with Special Needs I understand the difficulties and challenges people and families face on a daily bases and have always worked to ensure that our society is an accessible, inclusive environment which welcomes and supports everyone to live an independent and healthy life regardless of age or disability - and I also know how simple measures can enable people with disabilities to participate more fully in decision making and access services and facilities that most people take for granted."

Today and every day, we are working hard to change the face of politics. Only one quarter of Fingal councillors are women.

You can help us address that balance @ www.socdems.ie
- with a donation of your time, helping us to drop leaflets and to meet your neighbours
- with a donation to help us run a successful campaign
- but most importantly with your vote on May 24th!

Our deputy Lord Mayor a woman, had a community group lie to me in writing so her campaign contributors could continue to sponsor an event. She should get the elected because she is a woman or voted out for being corrupt?

Oh these poor poor women are unrepresented in politics....and coal mines..construction sites..fishing trawlers...driving trucks..van delivery..lumberjacks...I could go on

When it comes to uninspiring, flip flopping liberals going whichever way the wind blows I don't really care if they're male or female to be honest, and to hear your mob described as "left" makes me want to puke!
