Dr Séamus McMenamin

Councillor for Meath West

My vision 

I want Meath West to be a place where people can live well and work locally if they choose.

What I stand for

As we manage the effects of climate breakdown I want to make sure that those less well off do not suffer and that we have a truly just transition.

My priorities

  • Save Navan Hospital.
  • Practical Solutions for the housing crisis.
  • Rail line to Navan.
  • Just transition so no one gets left behind as we move away from carbon.

My experience

I am the Health Spokesperson for the Green Party and a local GP in Navan. I believe Counties Meath and Westmeath need a green voice in the Dáil. No other party will see that local jobs are prioritised and the new green economy is delivered from Castlepollard to Trim and from Oldcastle to Navan.
