The Local Election 2019 saw a record number of women elected to Councils across Ireland. But they still only represent a quarter of all Councillors. Read more in our analysis of the election results.

You can find a complete list of all the women who ran in the Local Election 2019 here.

In a series of interviews with sitting Councillors from across Ireland, we take a closer look at the role of a local Councillor, the difference it makes having women represented on the council and why we need to run and elect more women.
