RUTH COPPINGER has been the Socialist Party Councillor for the Mulhuddart ward since taking over from Joe Higgins T.D. in July.

In that time she has represented communities on a wide range of issues from housing to transport to facilities.

Ruth played a leading role organising opposition to the bin tax.

She fought against the Hansfield development of 2,000 houses, demanding it be put back until the necessary infrastructure are put in place.

Alongside local people, Ruth Coppinger organised public meetings and protests against the Manager's unjust council rent increases early last year.

She is a secondary school teacher and member of the ASTI and lives in Mulhuddart.

Ruth will continue to be a voice for ordinary people on the Council if elected. Contact Ruth Coppinger @ 8116174
