Marc O’Cathasaigh

Councillor for Tramore Waterford City West

My vision for Tramore-Waterford City West

I want Waterford City and Tramore to be places of vibrant and resilient communities, where we can live, work and build a future together.

What I stand for

I believe that we have to make Waterford City a driver for the entire Southeast, where people from the wider region can access a full range of services, from health to education to employment. As our population in Waterford City and Tramore increases, we have to plan for the services and facilities those new people will need.

My priorities

    • Campaign for better active travel infrastructure, including the provision of a segregated bike lane on the Tramore Ring Road and connecting the Greenway from Waterford out to Tramore.
    • Maintain and improve our education offering. Tramore should be better able to provide choice for parents, to cater for children with special needs within our own community, and should have the option of providing Post Leaving Certificate courses as well.
    • Protect and improve our environment locally and nationally, using council resources to protect and encourage biodiversity and to provide a clean, healthy and sustainable space for our communities.
    • Bring life back to the centre of our urban communities, making our town centres places to do business, but also to live, socialise and raise a family.
