I am a full time politician, committed to my work. I have worked hard for the people of Carlow. We all know our economy is recovering but it's very important that it spreads across the whole country and I am working with my Government colleagues to ensure this happens.
I was elected to Carlow County Council in 2009 after my late father Micheál retired. I was elected to Dáil Éireann in 2011. I am Vice Chair of the Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine and a member of the Public Service Oversight & Petitions committee.
