We can be a bit cynical about politics in The Tortoise Shack. But our guest today, Local Election candidate for the Social Democrats in Galway City Central, Activist and bundle of positive energy, Sharon Nolan is enough to shake anybody out of their stupor, even Martin.
Sharon talks to us about her background in activism, her natural progression to seeking public office and the need for those office holders to be voices from the communities they represent. Sharon also talks passionately about Teach Solais, the only LGBT Resource Centre in the West of Ireland and their critical need for funding.
