I grew up in Mount Temple before training as an Architect. I have spent the last six years working on projects in the housing and education sectors. My background means I am passionate about the Midlands, seeing great potential in our historic towns and villages as well as our incredible natural heritage.
As a local activist and member of the Midland Greens I have organised events on mental health, sustainability, farming and rural transport. I’ve been involved in the Together for Yes and Sick of Plastic Campaigns as well as supporting local students in the Climate Strikes.
In May 2019 I became the first Green Party Councillor elected in Athlone. Since then I have had a great start in the role; I have successfully advocated for more investment in foot and cycle paths, I have secured the planting of additional trees as well as the protection of some existing trees, I have secured commitment from the Council to install drinking water points in the town and on the greenway and a reverse vending machine for the return of plastic bottles. I am also now the chair of Westmeath Heritage Forum, the Planning and Transport SPC and a member of Longford Westmeath ETB.
I am currently running my general election campaign to become the first Green TD for Longford Westmeath. If you would like to support my campaign please get in touch or donate here.
