Shops, cafes, hotels and small businesses – they drive our local economy.
It is now time to recognise the small and medium farmers who form the backbone of Irish rural life
We need a sustainable solution before we hit a full-blown crisis
Over 100 Clare locals come out to volunteer and support Roisín Garvey’s general election campaign
Born and living in Co. Clare, I am a mother, educator, environmentalist and County Councillor. Inspired by the hardworking and creative people of Clare I have co-founded and organised funding for educational and sporting groups and healthcare services, community events, environmental campaigns and local infrastructure projects throughout Clare. I vow to work for more and better local housing, increased transport in towns and rural parts of Clare, improvements in health services and more support for Clare’s farmers. I am determined to support business and increase sustainable jobs in Clare. Sustainable rural development is key to the lives of the people of Clare. I want farmers, and those at risk of flooding, protected sooner rather than later. I want to give younger people a voice and to give them hope in relation to their concerns about climate and their futures. The people of Clare need a strong voice in the Dáil and in Government. I have the drive and determination to persistently make sure Clare’s voice is heard and our needs are met.
Jobs: Increase employment in Clare through investment in eco-tourism, opportunities for young people and support for local business.
Housing: More affordable, energy efficient quality homes built in the right areas for employment and public amenity.
Transport: Invest in bus, rail, cycle-ways, traffic management, public lighting and footpaths, improved accessibility and road safety for all of Clare.
Health: Pressure government to increase local access to key medical services.
Farming: Support farmers, the true custodians of biodiversity in Clare’s countryside. Now more than ever is the time for Greens and farmers to work together to protect Clare’s farming industry.
