I’d like to introduce myself as your Labour Party Local Area Representative.
I work as a Social Worker in Child and Adolescent Mental Health and I’m currently completing my training in Family Therapy.
I live in Killeshin with my wife Karen who is a teacher in a local school. For a number of years, I worked as a Youth Worker in Gragiuecullen and I later worked with the housing charity Focus Ireland.
I grew up on a small dairy farm in Wolfhill and went to school in Newtown NS and the Presentation Carlow. After school I completed a degree in Social Care in Athlone IT. I undertook further training in Criminology and Social Policy with the Open University before completing my Social Work training in Trinity.
If elected my priority would be community development. I would focus on creating public amenities that are accessible to all. I would work to promote local jobs to reduce the numbers commuting and I would focus on protecting our environment.
If there are any issues that you wish to discuss, do not hesitate to contact me.
