Wishing you all the best on 24th May
Wishing you all the very best.
I’m running in my first election for DLRCOCO (after being co-opted to Neale Richmond’s seat in 2016- another Wesley College Alumni of course!) For all of you living in the Glencullen/ Sandyford area- (Ballinteer, Sandyford, Leopardstown, Glencullen, Kilternan) I’d really appreciate your No 1 vote on May 24th!
Cllr Emma Blain
Wishing you well ,
All the Best Lynn
Hello, dont ask me what year I left Wesley - I was a boarder - maybe someone else knows. I am standing in NI to offer people a chance to move away from Green Orange options to a shared future. It is a very difficult time here with no Government the last 3 years, and more than 3700 people have died by suicide since Good Friday Agreement at least in part due to trauma and lack of social cohesion which still continues. It is a deeply segregated community, schools, sports etc. Whilst less people are dying violent deaths like Lyra, there is very little done by main parties to build peace and end division. I am an active health lobbyist, working on rural inequality, mental health, disability and autism issues. Currently trying to get this historic asset Saving Necarne pulled back from the brink of exploitation for housing development into health asset.
