Trinity College Dublin organised an event last week 'Meet the Candidates', where all 16 #TCDSeanadElection candidates were given 4 minutes each to speak to the audience. It was also live streamed on Periscoope TV for anyone who couldn't make it. 

I took the opportunity to run through my Trinity life, my legal career and my Seanad record. Here are my 4 minutes - #VoteIvanaBacik No.1

At the Lincoln Gates, TCD heading inside for the nominations' announcement - Seanad Election 16

‪#‎TCDLifer‬ For most of the last 30 years Trinity College, Dublin has been an integral part of my daily life. I started as a student at 17, becameTrinity College Students' Union President in 1989/1990 during which I nearly went to prison for providing information on Abortion Rights along with the other officers, never missed a Trinity Ball, partied in the The Pavilion Bar, crammed in the Berkley Library Trinity College, ate chips in the The Buttery, debated in the The Phil, dined in the Common Room, rubbed shoulders with the academics, have lectured in the School of Lawsince October 1995 and in 2007 was first elected to Seanad Éireann as a Dublin University/TCD panel Senator. I would love your support to use the next 5 years to effect legislation, shape debates and bring your issues to the floor! Please consider giving me your No. 1 Vote! Vote Ivana Bacik No.1 #TCDSeanadElections

From the Archives: Hot Press - HP Interview: Ivana Bacik, 12 May 2004 

More from the archives and more from Hot press magazine, with links to several articles in the same year. This time unlike my 1997 interview I have entered my hat into the political election arena and ran in the hugely contested European elections of 2004. A disappointing year as it was the same election we lost the Citizenship Referendum.

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.

No Fry Zone! Order of Business - 27th January 2016

Posted on January 27, 2016

no fry zone

Order of Business, Seanad Éireann - Raised Matters

Senator Ivana Bacik: I commend Senator Noone who yesterday on the Commencement raised the issue of a no-fry zone. This is an issue that is getting a great deal of support, particularly from parents. It seeks new planning regulations to ensure that chip shops cannot be located within 500 m of a school. This is part of a drive for healthier living and healthier eating among children in order to tackle the very worrying levels of obesity. I commend the Senator on raising it and lend my support to the many parents' groups supporting the no-fry zone campaign.
