Main message to voters:

I have always been a strong voice for the people of Tipperary. I work closely with the IDA and local authorities to attract employment and infrastructure to Tipperary.

Election history:

Tom is currently the Min of State at the Department of Agriculture. He has been involved in politics since 1991. He was elected to the Seanad in 1997 and was elected to the Dail in 2001 where he has served since having been successfully returned at each election by the people of Tipperary.


  1. To continue to work closely with the IDA and the Department of Jobs to attract major investment and employment to the region.
  2. Continue working with Tipp farmers and food producers on promoting and growing our food & Agri Industry which attracts global recognition & praise.
  3. Investment in broadband throughout the County. There are still pockets of rural areas without adequate coverage and this must be addressed.
