A nationalist and human rights activist. Rosemary McGlone is a teacher in a Secondary School in Belfast and a mother to four young children. Like many Nationalists, Rosemary felt no longer represented by SF or the SDLP. Rather than let herself be disenfranchised with no one to vote for, Rosemary has taken a step forward so that people like her might have a voice in Stormont. Like so many Rosemary has been frustrated by Nationalist parties in the North who have abandoned their communities and supported discriminatory policies.
The final straw came for Rosemary when Sinn Féin and SDLP MLAs voted for abortion up until birth for children with disabilities. Rosemary McGlone also opposes the deprioritisation funding of hundreds of local schools that is contained in the Integrated Education Bill.
