Green Party Councillors at the Local Green Group Think In 2021
Quote marks

I stand for Social Justice, sustainable communities, positive activities and policies on Climate Action and importantly, I stand for the needs of the community in which I represent.

My priorities

Safe Community & Public Spaces: I want to help create & implement policies and services which make our area safe while walking, commuting on public transport, as well as cycling.

To make sure all of my work as a Councillor is informed by the need for equality and inclusion. I believe that the Council should build a culture of belonging for all in the community.

To advocate for more sustainable policies /practices and initiatives when it comes to waste management e.g recycling facilities on streets.

Ensure that the voices and views of the Cabra/Glasnevin are heard at a city-wide level.


I have a background in activism for environmental and social justice. Previously working with Amnesty International , The European Greens and the Union of Students In Ireland.

I have a keen interest in youth and women empowerment, fast fashion and waste management.

I once held the title of ‘Ireland’s Youngest Mayor’ only to be de-bunked a month later by someone younger!
