In the build-up to election 2020, Clare FM is meeting each of the candidates and allowing them a chance to outline to you, the voter, what they will do if elected on February 8th.
Róisín Garvey is running for the Green Party
My vision for Clare:
Make Clare the number one sustainable tourism destination in Ireland that will increase jobs and economic stability across the county while protecting the environment.
My priorities if elected:
My priority is for the sustainable longterm increase in employment in Clare. This can be achieved in a way that supports the protection of the environment and make Clare families, businesses and farmers thrive into the future.
I am a Green Schools Travel Education Officer at An Taisce Environmental Education Unit and Clare County Councillor. I am a mother, educator, entrepreneur and have consistently devoted myself to the improvement of community services and the environmental protection of Clare.
I have co-founded educational and sporting groups, as well as organised funding for healthcare services, community events, environmental campaigns and local infrastructure projects throughout Clare.
