The free online course will run for anyone who would like to build up their knowledge about politics.

Women in Roscommon and Westmeath are being encouraged to consider a more active role in politics.

The SHE, See Her Elected, school is running a free online course next Wednesday and the following week for anyone who wants to start to build up a bit of knowledge about what politics is and how politics works.

The classes will run twice in a bid to fit into day-to-day life with a morning option from 10-11.30am and an evening option from 7.30-9p.m.

The modules will cover the basics of how politics and local government works and the various options available for women on committees, in elected roles or on campaigns.

Mairead O' Shea from the SHE school says the number of women on county councils in rural areas is particularly low:
