I am a councillor for the Lucan Electoral Area in South Dublin County Council.
I am a former Labour Party T.D. for Dublin Mid West Constituency. Dublin Mid West stretches from the border of Lucan with Kildare to the border of Brittas with County Wicklow and includes within its boundaries Clondalkin, Palmerstown, Newcastle, Rathcoole and Saggart. I ran as the Labour General Election candidate in Dublin Mid West in the By-Election of 2019 and the General Election 2020.
My family and I live in Lucan where I have lived for most of my life. I got involved in the Labour Party when I was still at school and I was involved in helping out in election campaigns right back to my childhood. I am a qualified solicitor but I am not practicing as a solicitor. I have been active in many local campaigns and groups in my community from when I left school to date.
I was elected a Labour county councillor in 1999 for the areas of Lucan, Palmerstown and Quarryvale. I contested the General Election in 2002 and in the Seanad Campaign that followed. I served as a Labour Senator from 2002 to 2007 when I was elected to the Dail. I served as a TD for Dublin Mid West Constituency from 2007 to 2016.
