Sinn Féin
Party 4


Incumbent :

Main message to voters:

The austerity policies of previous governments have plunged many people into hardship and further deepened inequality. Sinn Féin propose reinvestment in key areas such as healthcare, housing and public services to create a more equal society.

Election history:

I was elected to the Dáil in 2011 having served as a Councillor since 1999. I have made hundreds of representations for my constituents -both at local & national level - on issues of housing and transport, and contrubuted in 150 committee discussions and Dáil debates— well above average among TDs.

Priorities:

  1. End austerity; abolition of water charges; introduce sufficient measures to control rents; increase investment in social housing to provide more homes
  2. Public transport to serve our communities; more investment in our services - I oppose the privatisation of bus routes
  3. Transport links to Dublin Airport - Metro North.
