Terenure Educate Together National School campaign

Posted on August 17, 2015

With Terenure ETNS campaigners

It was great to meet Nikki Murphy and her fellow volunteer colleague in the Seanad last month. They are a part of a campaign working hard to establish an Educate Together school, in D6, Terenure. I wish them every success and fully support their call to offer more educational choices for parents and their children.

Dear Supporter,

As we approach the summer break, I here's a short update on the work that I have been doing politically in recent months. As always, you will see more information on all these issues and more throughout sections of the website www.ivanabacik.com, on facebook (Ivana Bacik) and twitter (@ivanabacik).

The political highlight of the past year so far has been the great success of the Marriage Equality Referendum on 22nd May – a resounding 62% for the Yes vote – a wonderful result!

Many thanks again for your continued support,

Very best wishes, Ivana.
