Party 5


Incumbent :

Election history:

I was a member of Fingal County Council for the Mulhuddart area from 2003 to 2014. In 2014 I was elected to the Dáil in the Dublin West by-election. I am a member of the Socialist Party. Following a campaign against household and property charges I helped to establish the Anti-Austerity Alliance.

Priorities:

  1. Abolition of Water Charges. I will continue to build the mass boycott of these hated charges which will force the next government to abolish them.
  2. The Housing Crisis. I will struggle with those effected to ban economic evictions, for rent controls, mortgage write downs & to build council homes.
  3. Repeal the 8th. Priests & politicians have no right to interfere with women's personal decisions. A referendum is needed now to allow women to choose.
