Labour
Party 3


Incumbent :

Main message to voters:

I have always been a strong voice for our community. I have fought hard to tackle inequality in all aspects of our society. I have worked to ensure that the economic recovery benefits everyone , not just the few. I want a society built on decent jobs, quality public services and strong communities.

Election history:

I was elected to Dáil Éireann on my first attempt in the 2011 General Election. I was previously a Labour Party Councillor for Ballymun, Finglas, Glasnevin and Santry (2008-2011). I am Vice-Chair of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise, and Innovation.

Priorities:

  1. That everyone in our community can have a place they call home.
  2. That every child has access to their local school, regardless of their identity, family background, faith or non-faith.
  3. To continue to champion the introduction of a Living Wage in Ireland. Everybody deserves a wage they can live on, rather than just survive.
