Who am I?

Originally from Camillaun Park, my wife, Karen, and I have three young boys aged 9, 5 and 4 who attend Claddagh National School. I have always been passionate about helping people where possible, which prompted my entry into politics. I was first elected as an Independent Councillor in 2014 and subsequently re-elected in 2019.

Why am I contesting this election?
