Adrienne Wallace first ran for election in the 2015 by-election for Carlow-Kilkenny. The following year she ran in the 2016 general election, each time garnering thousands of votes. She has a B.A. Hons in Humanities from Carlow College and worked as a waitress before becoming full time in politics.
At 28 she is one of the youngest political candidates in Ireland. She believes the political establishment has failed her generation and that we need a radical break from the politics of the few. She added, ‘People Before Profit do politics differently, we believe in people power and don't accept donations from corporations. Locally I have been involved in establishing the local Repeal the 8th groups in Carlow and Kilkenny. We kick-started the campaign for the badly needed women’s refuge in Carlow. And are active in the Still Waiting Health Campaign. It's an honour to stand with the communities in Carlow and Kilkenny to fight for a politics that puts People Before Profit.’
Constituency: Carlow (Local), South (Euro)
