I live in Lagavooren Manor, Drogheda with my husband Cathal and 3 children. I am a newly appointed member of Meath County Council and a lifelong Trade Union member.
After over 20 years working in Business Banking in the Dublin, Louth and Meath areas, I am currently teaching in Colaiste na hInse in Bettystown. This has offered me the opportunity to work closely with young people and families in the coastal area. I hold a B.A. & M.A. in Economics and Finance from Maynooth University and am also a Qualified Financial Advisor.
Witnessing the growing social and economic disparity between sections of our society, I joined the Labour Party to actively work towards bridging that gap. I believe in a fair and just society for all and I am passionate about creating equality of opportunity, supporting socially responsible business and enterprise and working towards unlocking the untapped potential of our area
Raising a young family here over the last 15 years, I am more than aware of the unique challenges that the area of East Meath faces and the absolute requirement for better co-operation between Meath & Louth County Councils on the delivery of basic local services. I believe that longer-term sustainable planning is crucial to enhance the quality of life of the residents of the East Meath constituency and this is a cornerstone of my work as a newly appointed Councillor.
