My name is Conor Sheehan and I am a Labour Party Councillor on Limerick City and County Council. I was first elected in May 2019 and I ran for election because I believe my generation are underrepresented in political life. I was born and have lived all my life on the Northside of Limerick City.
Limerick is a fantastic city with enormous potential and challenges. I want to help Limerick grow and to be a progressive voice for our city. I believe Limerick and the Mid-West can act as a counter pull to Dublin, but in order for that to happen there are key issues that need to addressed such as the livability of our city centre, congestion due to a lack of efficient public transport, a shortage of quality affordable housing and the neglect of Shannon Airport.
During my short time on the Council, I have secured funding for badly needed community facilities for Corbally and to refurbish Clare Street Park. I was also instrumental in organising opposition to RTE's decision to close their Limerick studio and downgrade Lyric FM.
If you would like to get involved in any of my campaigns, please get in touch, I'd love to hear from you.
