There are many people like Maura living in Dublin Bay South, having reared their families here and worked to support them.
Now, their children need them again, to help them rear the next generation.
Because of the lack of affordable childcare, it is increasingly common to see the grannies and grandads of Dublin Bay South chipping in and helping to assist where they can.
I am lucky to have met Maura when I started my business in Rathgar, and she has been a welcome visitor to the pharmacy over the last few years. She is practical, considerate and caring and her support means a lot to me, especially now that I am running for election.
