I am delighted to have been selected to cotest the local elections on behalf of the Labour Party in the newly formed Firhouse - Bohernabreena electoral area of Dublin South West. I grew up in the Knocklyon area; and I now work as a trade union official representing health workers in both public and private healthcare.
Our community has changed rapidly over the last few years, mostly for the better. However, that doesn't mean that there aren't challenges we face. the area's population is growing and there is an increased need for services as a result. I want to be a strong voice on South Dublin County Council who advocates for investment in our public transport infrastructure, defends locally provided public services and argues for facilities that allow our young residents to thrive in our changing community.
I look forward to meeting as many residents as possible over the coming months; and I hope to hear all your opinions as to how our community can be maintained and improved.
