Danielle O’Rourke will be running for local election in the Killiney-Shankill LEA, alongside Cllr. Hugh Lewis. She was born and raised in Loughlinstown, with strong familial ties to the area.
Danielle has a degree in science from UCD, and better access to education at all levels is something she has been advocating for over the past few years. She got more involved in People Before Profit after seeing the great work the representatives did in the lead up to a referendum announcement on repealing the 8th, and has worked with the D˙n Laoghaire Together for Choice & Equality group since its inception.
Danielle plans to build movements around adequate mental health services, resources for those with additional needs in schools, informed health/drug policy, and the separation of church & state.
