Jackie Connolly has lived on the Northside of Cork all her life and is  living in Gurranabraher for the last 20 years.

      She is married to Ed and they have five school-going children, aged from 18 years down to 4 years.

      Jackie is a Republican Socialist and has been a community activist and representative for many years. She has helped people with issues such as Social Welfare, Housing, Traffic Calming etc.


The issues on which Jackie is fighting include

         Writing to the city council to release houses to possible tenants by means of a new tenant signing agreement. Tenants should be allowed paint the inside of the home, do minor works to the house, leave fitted kitchens etc.

         Meeting with city official to discuss ways to introduce the position of a senior citizen housing officer to deal with all elderly tenants issues (rather than being passed from one department to another)

         She attends community watch meetings and quarterly forums with the Council, Garda and residents to address Anti-Social Behaviour.

         Chair of the Gurranabraher Residents Association.
