Women for Election are one of Carmichael’s newest resident member groups and today we are delighted to promote their upcoming event ‘Introduction to Irish Politics’, with Pat Montague.

If you’re a woman looking to learn more about politics or how to get involved, then join Women for Election in person in Carmichael house on Tuesday the 26th of April for an exciting Masterclass from Pat Montague about Irish political structures and systems.

Have you ever wondered what the difference between the Dáil and the Seanad is? Or how your local council is run? Or perhaps, you would like to better understand Irish politics?

Introduction to Irish Politics is a training session designed to provide attendees with a foundational understanding of how the Irish political system works.

This session will cover the functions of the local government and the role of a Councillor as well as the Dáil and the Seanad, including the development of parliamentary committees.

The trainer will walk you through the stages of how legislation is passed and the role each house of the Oireachtas plays in these stages.

This training session will demystify and breakdown the Irish political system and structures, so that you can be informed if you make the decision to run for political life/when you take your seat in the Oireachtas.

Refreshments will be provided on the night. Spaces are limited to make sure to book your now! To find out more about Women for Election check out their website here. They’re on social media too; see their Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
