I feel we owe it to future generations, our children and grandchildren, to act with urgency to prevent the collapse of the earth's ecosystems, so they inherit a world where nature thrives and the future remains hopeful and full of possibilities.

As representative for Limerick City West I will work for clean air and water in our communities, to restore biodiversity and fight for access to quality healthcare for all.

My priorities

Health -
The people of Limerick deserve a healthcare system that provides quick access to quality healthcare for all. I will work for the delivery of resources and infrastructure in particular for our older population and children with additional/special needs.

Housing -
Housing is a human and social right that every individual deserves. I will advocate for increased supply and development of cost-rental, social and affordable housing in Limerick, as well as addressing the problems of dereliction and vacancy through collaboration in our community

Air and Water quality -
We need to be confident that the air we breathe and the water we drink is free from pollution. I will work to ensure there is a focus on the quality of our air and water and for more air monitoring stations to be set up throughout Limerick City West.

Transport -
We need to reduce congestion and the pressure on our roads. I will work for long term solutions, through the development of safe cycling and walking routes, improved public transport, including new railway stations in Dooradoyle, Raheen, Patrickswell and Mungret, as well as a park and ride in Raheen.

City centre regeneration -
Limerick’s city centre has huge potential but unfortunately, parts of it are being left derelict, vacant and in decay. I will work to reduce dereliction and vacancy in the city centre and harness this potential to be one of the most vibrant, liveable cultural centres in the country.

Green Energy -
Limerick has the potential to be the green energy capital of Europe, a hub of innovation for green jobs in offshore wind and green hydrogen. As a Green party councillor in Limerick City West I will work to facilitate this vision.


I have worked in the health sector as a physiotherapist for over 15 years, mainly as senior physiotherapist in the National Orthopaedic and Spinal injuries unit.

As a father to two young daughters, one of whom is autistic, I have an acute awareness of the pressures faced by parents due to the shortage of resources in childcare and disability services. I feel strongly, that every child should have instant access to the resources they need to thrive in life.

Recently, I was part of the vaccination team in Patrickswell, Scoil Carmel and UHL in Limerick City West. This experience has shown what can be achieved when facing a global challenge, with a community working together towards a common goal. I feel a similar team effort will be required, if we are to overcome the current and future challenges facing us with a rapidly changing climate.
