You are very welcome to my Labour Party webpage.
I have been a Councillor on Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, representing Ballybrack, Johnstown, Killiney, Loughlinstown, Shankill and parts of Bray, Cabinteely and Glenageary. I first became a Councillor in 2003 when I was co-opted on to the Council. I was elected Cathaoirleach of the Council for the year 2013-2014. I have served on many committees including the Dun Laoghaire and Dublin Education Training Board, Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Social Development and Inclusion Committee and the Loughlinstown, Shankill and Ballybrack Local Policing Forum.
My parents Anne and Frank grew up in Ballybrack and Shankill respectively, emigrated to Manchester for six years and then returned to set up home in Dalkey. I grew up in Dalkey where I went to Loreto Primary School and when I was in my late teens we moved to Shankill. I attended secondary school at Dominican College Sion Hill, Blackrock then Dun Laoghaire Senior College and Dublin Institute of Technology. I have worked most of my life in St. Michael’s Hospital Dun Laoghaire with a short period in St. Vincent’s University Hospital. My husband Aidan and I live in Killiney with our two dogs Leah and Scratch.
In my work as a Councillor I have always advocated and supported social housing, most recently the developments at Fitzgerald Park, Rochestown and Rosemount. I have fought for more coherent planning and development and improved engagement with the public. I sought to ensure more and better local amenities throughout the County such as playgrounds and play facilities for sports groups and improved transport arrangements for all users. I have been mainly involved in policy issues at local level.
National politics, the legislative role of a Dáil deputy, national and international policy issues and the priorities of the people of Dun Laoghaire as a whole represent a deeper and broader challenge. I believe that I am capable of undertaking that responsibility effectively.
Should you have a query on the above or on any other issue, I encourage you to contact me at any time.
