In 2019 I was honoured to be elected for the first time to Wexford County Council. As per my previous campaign, I wish to keep things simple, conducting a stripped back and simple campaign, focusing on what matters. YOU. Well, you and your community.


Your community could be your family, road, your street or estate, your club or your business. But it always begins with YOU. Those of you who know me know I love ideas, love discussion and conversation and love to talk. But most importantly, I love getting things done. And if I cannot help, or if it cannot be done I’ll tell you.

Over the coming months I intend to talk to as many people as possible in my District. This will be an opportunity for me to listen to you, to hear about your thoughts, hopes and ideas for Wexford, and an opportunity for me to share mine.

Over the last five years, as well as a councillors standard duties, I have had several focus areas, (which if you wish to find out more you can access my social media) where I have made considerable strides.

I always look to the future, and look for opportunity, while learning from and respecting our history and heritage. However, with the pressing challenges of growing social polarisation and inequality confronting my communities, and the growing concerns over climate change the following will be some of my focus areas.

Housing and our Communities: I will continue to advocate for council tenant, and push for inclusive urban planning to build towards vibrant communities that prioritizes the wellbeing of all residents. This includes safe, well-lit and accessible public spaces and active travel routes for residents of all ages.

Youth Engagement and Empowerment: I acknowledge that young people today communicate and engage in ways very different from prior generations. I also recognise the invaluable perspectives and energy that young people bring to our communities. My campaign is dedicated to engaging with youth, listening to their concerns, and creating opportunities for their meaningful participation in local decision making.

Support for Local Businesses: Local businesses are the backbone of our economy and play a vital role in the social fabric of our county. I will continue to support and promote them, push for the finalising of a Transport Management Plan and continue to fight against dereliction and unauthorised surface level car parks

Education: I am committed to ensuring that promised investments in Primary, Post Primary and Third Level education buildings and facilities happen in a timely manner. Every child in Wexford deserves to receive a local, high-quality education that nurtures, and prepares them for success in a rapidly changing world.

Climate Action and Environmental Sustainability: I recognise the urgent need for environmental stewardship and am committed to ensuring that the council’s Climate Action Plan is implemented. I will advocate for increased investment in home energy retrofitting and the protection of our natural resources (soil, water and air) for future generations, as well as the promotion of biodiversity.

Preservation of Local History and Heritage: Our county has a rich and diverse history that deserves to be cherished and preserved for future generations. I will continue to protect and promote our local heritage through initiatives that celebrate our cultural identity, preserve historic sites and landmarks, and promote awareness and appreciation of our shared history.

Promotion of the Arts: The arts play a vital role in enriching our community, fostering creativity, and promoting cultural diversity. I recognizes the importance of supporting local artists, arts organizations, and cultural events. I will continue to promote access to the arts for all, and push for the creation of a new theatre spaces for artistic expression and collaboration.

As a candidate for the Local Elections, I believe that by working together, we can overcome any challenge and seize the opportunities that lie ahead for our county. I truly believe that together, we have the opportunity to build a more sustainable, inclusive, and prosperous future for the people of Wexford.
