Welcome to my website. I was selected to replaced Aidan Culhane on Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council in September 2011, and am honoured and delighted to have the chance to work for the people of the Dundrum Ward on the council.
I grew up in Dundrum and have lived my whole life in the area. I went to school in Taney NS and the High School. I work as a music teacher . At 28, I think I have the ability to bring something new to politics. I am passionate about the area and I want to see it develop in the right ways. We know times are tough, and that’s why it’s more important than ever that we use the resources we have in the best possible way, and that everywhere gets its fair share.
Politicians love talking, but listening is more important. Learning about problems, understanding points of view, hearing what people are saying is the most important thing. Only then can we use our ideas and our values to find the best way forward, and make the arguments for progress in our community.
