Seán Mac Cearáin
Seán Mac Cearáin is a retired lecturer, having worked for 35 years in the NWRC of Further Education. During that time, he taught GCSE and A level English, Irish and History. He spent many years teaching on schemes aimed at the personal development of the unemployed youth in the city. As a result of this, he has a keen interest in youth unemployment and the development of further education schemes to the needs of those in our society who are not suited to traditional academic courses.
Seán has a strong passion for the development of the Irish language, having spent much of his adult life teaching the language throughout the city and the surrounding areas. Currently, he is the Language and cultural officer for Na Magha Hurling club and a traditional fiddle player.
Seán is passionate about fighting unemployment, welfare dependency and emigration. He is dedicated to ensuring that local government does exactly what it is legislated to do. He will oppose all time-wasting by those parties who use council to push agendas which are not within the remit of the council and will keep the focus on serving Derry
