Address:

Lower Park, Corbally, Limerick

Why have you decided to run in the Local Elections ?

As the youngest candidate running in my electoral area, I think renewal and change are very important in politics.

I also believe politics is about ideas and I put myself forward for election to work for the betterment of all of the community.

I do not come from a political family but I am very ambitious for our area.

I want to be a vibrant and energetic advocate for the north side of Limerick and I would like to be a councillor who focuses on local issues.

I want to work on the bread and butter issues such as roads, footpaths, and the environment, planning and community facilities.

Why should people vote for you?

I think it’s time to freshen up the old Council with a young, energetic councillor to represent you.

I want to represent my home area as we are at a critical juncture in the future of our city. Let me be your voice on Limerick City and County Council and let us work together to tackle the issues we face.

I am 25 years of age and I have lived here all my life. With your help and support, I can work for the betterment of our city.

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

I believe we need more facilities for our young people in Limerick City North such as a youth facility in Corbally.

Public transport needs to be promoted and our bus services need to be more frequent and punctual.

I would also like to see the Coca Cola bike scheme extended to the University of Limerick.

I believe our natural resources such as the Westfield Wetlands need to be protected and developed and more resources are needed to tackle illegal dumping.

I would like to see more quality affordable housing, rent certainty and action to tackle derelict properties.

A new retail strategy needs to be adopted for the city centre taking into account the changing habits of consumers and an increasing move towards online shopping.
