Born and raised in Finglas, I moved to Swords and bought a home in the Castleview Estate in 2008. Later that year when the reality of the economic crisis hit home, I joined the Labour Party. The only political party to oppose the disasterous bank guarantee. I became active in the local organisation by getting involved in local campaigns regarding planning, job losses, better public transport and housing.
I decided to stand in the Local Elections in 2014 for the Swords Electoral Area as I firmly believed we needed new, young voices in our local Council chamber. We are living in extraordinary times where household budgets and local authority budgets are inextricably linked, so if we are to recover, we must act together side by side as neighbours and citizens. I will work night and day to earn the trust and support I need to rebuild the relationship between the community and the council chamber.
