Trinity Student's Union President Days

From the Archives: Hot Press - 'Bacik to Basics' 23rd July 1997 

Here is an article from 1997 courtesy of 'Hot Press' magazine, highlighting some of the starting points of my political activism and before entering the politcal representative arena, little did I know?! But I've revived this piece as it captures the essence of why I got involved in politics in the first place - to make a difference, to put equality on the agenda and keep it there! It frustrates me greatly of course that 27 years later and we're still fighting for abortion rights, but we must not give up till women stop dying or being forced into heartbreaking, potentially dangerous and vulnerable positions due to the lack of free, safe and legal access. I hope you'll give me your No. 1 Vote and I assure you I'll be campaiging hard to Repeal the Eighth Amendment as well as other existing inequalities.

It's been a tough weekend and it's not over yet! 

There are still recounts happening and there's even talk of lawyers having to come in.

Tomorrow I shall be handing in my Seanad election nomination papers and hope all Dublin University graduates eligible to vote will consider giving me their No.1 vote! #GE16
