Many thanks for taking the time to visit my site. If you have any questions or queries, do not hesitate to contact me directly.

I have recently been selected as a local area representative for the Labour Party in the Rathfarnham Local Electoral Area, having first contested the Local Elections in 2014. I have lived in Knocklyon almost my entire life with my family; and love the area in which I grew up. I now work as a trade union organiser, representing workers in both public and private healthcare.

The area has changed rapidly over previous years, mostly for the better. However, I hope to be able to progress an agenda of sustainable planning in the area, prioritising our education system for an expanding population; and supporting the introduction and expansion of facilities that allow our young people to thrive.

The Labour Party has a strong record on South Dublin County Council, in which representatives have fought for funding for projects that make a real difference to the lives of people in the area. They also have an exemplary record on planning matters, which is shared by our colleagues on councils around the country. I hope to support this work in my capacity as local area representative.

I look forward to meeting as many residents as possible over the coming months; and I hope to hear as many of your opinions as possible on how our community can be maintained or improved.
