I am an engineer by training and live and work in Limerick City Centre. I am the Green Party’s Spokesperson for Transport, Climate Action and Environment. I’m proud to come from Limerick; there’s nowhere else I would rather live. I am very excited about our city’s future and believe it has great untapped potential. I am working towards developing our city so that it becomes a healthy and happy city for all who live in it.
I am a graduate of the University of Limerick and I also hold a master's degree in Renewable Energy Systems Technology. In February 2020, I was elected to Dáil Éireann and became the first Green Party TD to represent Limerick City. I chair the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Environment and Climate Action. Prior to my election to the Dáil, I was a Green Party councillor representing Limerick North City on Limerick City and County Council.
I am your Green Party TD representing Limerick City
I have been actively involved in a number of groups and associations over the years and it was this activity that led me to stand for election to the local Council in May 2019.
My main priority in politics is to contribute to the development of the city of Limerick so that it becomes a healthy and happy city for all who live in it.
Stronger Regional Development
It is critical that we develop coherent policies that promote our regional cities. We need to ensure that Limerick delivers on its potential for economic growth. We can develop a region that prioritises quality health care, affordable housing and reliable public transport to enable this growth.
For Limerick and the Mid-West region to thrive and grow we need a strong voice from the Mid-West to champion regional growth, sustainability, and an urgent response to climate change.
A Fairer Society
Our response to the challenge of climate change must also ensure that we deliver a fairer society, in both urban and rural areas. To achieve this we need policies that support the most vulnerable in our society while improving prospects for all.
