I am a Local Election Candidate for Blanchardstown, Castleknock and Clonsilla and candidate in the forthcoming Local Elections on Friday, May 24th. I believe in working with local communities, residents' associations and local clubs to find constructive solutions to local problems.


A key part of my role is to represent the concerns of local communities to the Council, ensure residents have input into decisions affecting our local area and where necessary to challenge bad decisions, particularly in terms of planning and development. At a time when building has resumed on an increasingly large scale, development should be determined by community needs rather than by individual developers.


While the revival in jobs and the economy is positive, significant shortfalls in housing, public transport and health care have not been adequately addressed. There is a severe shortage of post primary school places in Castleknock, Carpenterstown and Blanchardstown. I will work to keep up investment in local primary and secondary schools to ensure that every child has a school place.


Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any queries or I can be of any assistance – email or give me a call.
