#62 Saoirse McHugh


G-g-g-guess who's back in the housssse?!........eh me! I am back in the house and my very special first house guest iiiiiiis, Peter Casey slayer, Saoirse Mc Hugh!

Saoirse was a Green Party candidate for the Midlands-Northwest region in the European elections in May and while she was not elected, she caught the attention of the nation when she appeared on RTE's Prime Time.

Saoirse told me that she never planned on entering politics but after years of inaction from her local elected representatives, she decided to take matters into her own hands. We talked about her unease at putting herself in the public eye but how the election process has emboldened her. Prior to running in the elections, Saoirse had no social media and was living in bliss on Achill Island. Things have definitely changed for her. She's been described as an Irish Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and if she decides to remain in politics, the future is looks brighter.

I am so pleased to have had the chance to chat with Saoirse and I hope you like it too.
