With its people and landscape Louth can be an example of how we can face the environmental challenges ahead, without sacrificing social or economic growth. Whether it’s our expanding Greenways; research at our Institute of Technology; or companies harnessing our renewable energy, the seeds are here for us to grow a legacy we can be proud of.
What I stand for
I believe in efficient public service provision; sustainable economic growth; and the strength of our local communities in resolving issues that we face today. Whether it be Brexit; housing and homelessness problems; or issues with our health service, I know that in coming together we can overcome any problems we face.
- As we face the international problem that is Brexit, I am focused at a local level to ensuring that there is no disruption to the communities and businesses of County Louth.
- I am committed to alleviating of the current housing crises by the intervention of our local authorities through the construction and provision of sustainable housing for those most in need of it.
- People have not only a right to a home but also a right to feel safe in that home; to this end, I will work to provide our communities, both rural and urban, with a level of policing and safety that we all deserve.
- I will work to promote the research, development and use of renewable technologies in our area for both domestic and commercial customers with our educational institutions and the introduction of community-based schemes.
Dundalk has always been my home and my family worked hard for various community organisations, instilling a strong sense of pride; caring, and community in me growing up. On finishing school, I trained as a Sound Engineer before going on to work in theatres around the country, including our own Táin Theatre. In 2010, like so many, I found myself without work and so returned to study Engineering in DkIT. On graduating I went to work as a Post-Graduate Researcher in DCU in the field of Wastewater Engineering. Throughout my career, I have seen in our people artistic creativity at its best and the strong technical ability that we need for the 21st Century. I strongly believe that working together we can solve many of today’s problems and will work to the best of my ability to facilitate this.
