My name is Angela Feeney and I am a Local Area Representative for Maynooth. I grew up in Maynooth and my family have lived here for generations. I am married to Barry with three children.
I attended the Presentation Girls National School, Maynooth Post Primary and am a graduate of Maynooth University. I have a strong belief in the empowering value of education to Society. Currently I am Head of the School of Languages, Law and Social Science at the Technological University Dublin, formerly DIT.
A former Secretary of Maynooth Labour Branch, I have worked over the past 15 years with Cllr. John McGinley and Emmet Stagg on Community matters and I want to continue the tradition of Labour's commitment to serving our Community.
I am heavily involved in my community. I served as the elected parents' representative on the Board of Management of Maynooth Post Primary School. I am Chair of Old Greenfield Residents Association and represent the Association on Maynooth Community Council. I am joint secretary of the Carton Avenue Preservation Society I previously served on the Maynooth Playground Committee which lobbied and negotiated the development of the excellent facility we have at The Harbour Field.
I want to ensure that the following issues, to name a few, are being acted on locally;
- Primary Care Centre for Maynooth
- Completion of Maynooth Education Campus and opening of North Kildare Gaelcholaiste.
- Swimming Pool for Maynooth in Partnership with Maynooth University
- Extension of DART to Maynooth and Completion of Ring Roads
- Provision of Affordable Housing and Council Housing in Maynooth
- More Gardaí for Maynooth and more Gardaí on the beat in the Community.
I look forward to working with you in the coming months and years to improve Maynooth Town. If you have any issues or suggestions you would like me to raise please do not hesitate to contact me.
