Incumbent : No

Main message to voters:

The people of Meath East need a TD who will work for them. I've lead the field among Meath's public representatives on the issues of the day - local or national. I'm a champion of communities. At national level, I've written/co-written more legislation than any other Oireachtas member in Meath

Election history:

Member of Dáil Éireann 2007-2011. Member of Seanad Eireann since 2011. Member of the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Health. Member of the Law Society of Ireland and the Bar of the State of New York.

Priorities:

  1. I've been to the fore in the response to the mortgage issue - shining a light on the crisis, working out solutions and helping individual citizens.
  2. Jobs/wages. Rightly, we focus on the minimum wage and the living wage. But they're minimums. Working Families should aspire to a proper, family wage
  3. I'm committed to undergrounding the North South interconnector
