New PPN representatives on the Local Community Development Committee (LCDC)
Clare PPN is delighted to announce two new Clare PPN representatives on the Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) following a call for nominations from our social inclusion and environmental member groups. We would like to extend our congratulations to them both and look forward to supporting their work on this important committee.
SOCIAL INCLUSION REP: Bridgie Casey – Clare Traveller CDP
Bridgie Casey is a member of the Traveller community, she is currently employed as Project Cordinator with Clare Travellers CDP. Previously, Bridgie was employed by CENA (Traveller lead housing body). Bridgie has worked with Traveller organisations at local and national level. Bridgie is committed to working with and for her community to achieve positive outcomes.
ENVIRONMENTAL REP: Bridget Ginnity – Clare Environmental Network
Bridget strongly believes that our towns and countryside in Clare can be an even better place to live if we develop active travel and public transportation options, if we enhance biodiversity and access to nature and upgrade our housing efficiently. Public participation is the way we can achieve the best solutions, and they also reduce our carbon emissions and help us deal with the climate emergency. Bridget brings scientific training and broad experience to these issues –. as a regulatory scientist with the European Chemical Agency (ECHA), as an environmental science and occupational hygiene consultant, and as product manager with air pollution instrumentation companies. She also holds a professional certificate in governance, and is a board member with the Ennis Book Club Festival and trustee of Clare Haven.
