Rachael Prendergast Spollen
While always politically engaged, it was the experience of being a key organiser in the Together for Yes campaign in the Dún Laoghaire constituency that was a driving factor in Rachel’s decision to become a local PBP rep.
The Struggle for Reproductive Rights had been a central part of Rachael’s political activity, but true Equality means having a safe home, a decent education, proper, accessible healthcare and the opportunity to meet each and every one’s potential. Rachael is committed for fighting for these rights.
She is a mother of 3 children, one of whom has ASD, so is only too aware of the challenges families face every day. Mental Health, and particularly campaigning for access to services and lack of Dual Diagnosis treatment is especially important to Rachael.
Whether in the area of Housing & Homelessness, Health, Mental Health, Disability Rights,Environmental issues, LGBTQ rights, and of course, Choice & Equality, Rachael is determined to work hard for the people of Stillorgan, Dún Laoghaire.
