    Susan Carton


    Susan moved to Kiltyclogher in 2004 with her
    partner Paul. Born and reared in Dublin, she was
    looking for a different quality of life and was drawn
    to Leitrim for the beautiful unspoilt landscape, the
    spirit of the people and the peace and quiet.
    In 2013, Susan got involved with Love Leitrim, a
    grassroots community group, who were interested in
    protecting Leitrim and the rest of the country, from
    the threats posed by Fracking. Following a successful
    campaign, culminating in the passing of a ban on
    Fracking in June 2017, Susan became involved, with
    the rest of her community, in the campaign to secure
    the primary school in Kiltyclogher.
    She currently works in St Angela’s College in Sligo
    where she is Programme director for the BA (Health and
    Disability Studies) and BA (Disability Equality Studies).
