I want Navan to be a safe clean place where people can really live
What I stand for
I stand for community, helping those who need it, supporting those who don’t to live up to their potential. We need a strong vibrant community and we can have it!
My priorities for Navan 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.
- Navan has grown over the past few years. Johnstown has the population of Trim but few amenities. We need playgrounds, youth diversion and civic spaces. We need to make Johnstown a real part of Navan.
- Tourism in Meath is strong, but not in Navan. I will work to develop the former St Pats Classical school into a museum/tourist attraction. Navan can learn from it’s neighbours and develop summer festivals to give tourists a reason to drive into Navan rather than through it.
- I will work with Tidy Towns committees, community groups and others to develop Navan. Community needs housing, jobs and to give people a reason to live well in Navan.
- The decision to close Navan A and E will not be made by the council but I can use my platform and knowledge of the health service to put pressure on local ministers and tds to keep this vital community resource going.
