My vision for Meath
I believe that people should be able to live and work in their own communities instead of commuting long distances to Dublin.
What I stand for
I stand for creating communities that work for all.
We need to wake up the streets of our towns and fill the empty shops and spaces. We need accessible towns with good parking, public spaces that are well maintained and available to all and that local communities belong to people of all ages.
I believe we borrow the land from our children and should treat it with respect.
My priorities for Meath are to enhance the things that make it a great place to live and to create new opportunities for people to live and work locally.
- To keep health services within County Meath and improve community services such as home help
- To establish a Meath hospice so that patients at the end of their life can come home to Meath.
- To work with local businesses and organisations to make Meath a zero waste county by 2020.
- To improve public transport, cycling (Meath greenway) and regional transport (Rail line to Navan).
I am the Green Party Spokesperson for Health. I work as a family doctor in Navan Co Meath and have a strong interest in health promotion. I believe that the health service should be re-organised to promote health as well as manage disease.
I am a board member and former chairperson of NEDOC (North East Doctor On Call) and am involved with the education of medical students and established doctors.
I am a member of the Navan Theatre group, was a race doctor for the Irish leg of the Giro D’Italia and have been team doctor to the Meath inter-county GAA Team.
