Theresa O’Donohoe

    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.

    Lisdoonvarna’s Theresa O’Donohoe is running for People Before Profit.

    My vision for Clare:


    A county that cares for and protects the most vulnerable. Where adequate health care and housing are available to all to meet their needs. Community centres bringing people together.

    Locally produced renewable power, sustainable transport, local food and thriving biodiversity supporting a dynamic ecotourism destination.

    My priorities if elected:

    • Declare a housing emergency and provide social and affordable housing.
    • Open Ennis A&E. Cut hospital waiting lists and increase bed capacity.
    • Urgent climate action which includes opposing Shannon LNG.
    • To be the voice inside the Dail representing the people and community actors of Clare.

    My experience:

    12 years in the background writing policy at local and national level on a variety of issues on sustainable community development including economics, energy, climate action, equality, land use, national risks.

    I co-founded Clare Public Participation Network – probably the most independent PPN within the country.
