This election couldn't be more important. Unemployment remains high, rural Ireland is in decline, and our climate is changing. We can choose between business as usual or a new type of politics that puts the long term interests of our country first. I am a new, young voice that can provide this.
This is my first time standing as a candidate. I have, however campaigned in general and local elections since joining the Green Party in 2007. In 2011, I acted as campaign manager for our Cavan - Monaghan candidate Darcy Lonergan.
