Main message to voters:

DDI- a National Citizens Movement aim to restore direct democracy to the Irish constitution, effectively giving the power back to the citizens of Ireland. Our main message to the voters of Ireland is that we will bring a stable Government that works solely on behalf of the people.

Election history:

This will be my first time running for election. I am a national executive member of Direct Democracy Ireland / National Citizens Movement. I am also the founder of Cavan Says No To Water Charges and I have dedicated as much time as I physically can to helping families fight home evictions.

Priorities:

  1. As a TD, I will prioritize an increased Garda presence in Cavan and Monaghan to enhance the safety of our local town & farming communities.
  2. When elected I will work to attract potential investors to Cavan/Monaghan to assist businesses and farming community through extra support and funding
  3. I will strive to bring extra funding for social housing and have mortgage supplement reinstated along with an increase for rent supplement recipients.
