Really looking forward to contributing to this training on #SDGs for women councilors on Saturday! Strongly encourage those from all parties & none to register - the SDGs are an important tool & frame - A great way to link local decisions with global best practice! https://t.co/TQ9DVPtobO

Nice to see Ireland in the top 10 on the #EIGEIndex. Sadly our politics score let us down at only 44.1 - our lowest score across all the areas covered. We might have made progress in the last few years but we still need a lot #morewomen in Irish politics https://t.co/0JpZspbsEi
