I am a strong, independent voice for Donegal in Dáil Éireann. I want to fight back to make Donegal centre stage in government decision-making. My mission is to protect the vulnerable, fight against regional inequality and help Donegal overturn decades of neglect by inclusive policy development.
Previously elected to Donegal County Council in 1999 and remained Councillor until the 2011 General Elections when I was voted in as TD. I currently sit on a number of Dáil Committees including: Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Members' Interests and Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement.
