Thank you for visiting my website.
I successfully contested the 2014 local elections to represent the people of the Blackrock Ward on Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. The ward includes Booterstown, Blackrock, Deansgrange, Seapoint and Monkstown.
My background is in communications having worked in the Communications Department of Gorta, the overseas development NGO, for a number of years. I also worked part-time in the Oireachtas where I helped people on a range of issues. I am very much aware of the problems that people face and my work has given me a great understanding of the supports available to people.
I want to work with local residents over the course of the next five years, and hopefully beyond, to make sure any issues or concerns you have are dealt with.
For me, being a local representative is about honesty, it is about hard work and most of all, it is about putting the people you represent first. I can and will play a strong role in pursuing important policies on housing, transport, planning and community spaces on Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.
My priorities for the area include:
- More and continued quality local consultation in council decisions
- Development of the Sutton to Sandycove (S2S) Cycleway
- Transport that responds to our needs as local commuters
- Supporting small businesses and seeking a solution to vacant retail units
- Making sure our community remains a great, clean, place to live and enjoy
- Working in partnership with residents to find a solution to parking problems and other local issues
There have been lots of great achievements in Blackrock and its surrounds and I will be working hard to make sure that more are forthcoming. Furthermore, I will ensure that the people of Blackrock, Booterstown, Deansgrange and Monkstown are well represented.
If there is anything you would like to discuss with me, or if you have any ideas, please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing me on [email protected] or by phoning me 087 2340409.
