Address

Greenpark, South Circular Road.

Occupation

Deputy Metropolitan Mayor, councillor, pharmacy owner

Why have you decided to run in the local elections?

I believe in Limerick. Limerick has come a long way, but has a lot of potential for the future.

As a business person in Limerick my ambition would be to see us developing the city properly.

We need Limerick City Centre to become a place where people want to live, work and do business.

We also need to promote our fantastic Medieval and Georgian heritage in order to attract visitors to the city. The Council needs to take a lead in this work with other interested groups.

Why should people vote for you?

If elected I am committed to representing the people of Limerick City West as I have done for the past three years.

I want to continue to work for people on their own personal issues. I want to continue to support community and sporting groups and I also want to continue to work for the ongoing development
of the city.

What do you think is lacking in your area and what will you be campaigning for?

I will be campaigning to see:

 The proper development of a green space amenity for the south side of the city incorporating the Baggot Estate, Ballinacurra Creek and Rosbrien.

This is all part of the Southside Masterplan currently in development.

 We need to see well planned development in the former Greenpark Racecourse including housing, and possibly educational and leisure facilities.

 We need to ensure the highest environmental protection standards including air and water quality, protection of green areas and indeed protection and enhancement of our built environment, especially Medieval and Georgian Limerick.

 Community policing is very important. An Garda Siochana need to work with community, residential and business groups on antisocial behaviour and home security.

 Transport connectivity to the city is a major issue. Park and Ride, bus services, cycle lanes and enhanced parking facilities in the City are all of major importance.

 Rural community development initiatives need to be supported in Ballybrown, Clarina, Mungret and Patrickswell.
