Denis Naughten
Independent
Party 6


Incumbent :

Main message to voters:

I'm the father of a young family who tries, like all others, to make things better. I have shown in the past that when our health services were under threat I was prepared to stand up & support patients. But it's not just health, job creation must become a priority for Roscommon & East Galway.

Election history:

Denis was re-elected to the Dáil in 2011 for Roscommon/South Leitrim. He was expelled from Fine Gael in July 2011, for voting against a government reversal of written commitments given by the coalition parties in advance of the 2011 election on health services at Roscommon County Hospital.

Priorities:

  1. Get jobs to cross the Shannon! Key areas such as farming, agrifood, tourism & small businesses need to receive proper recognition & support.
  2. Invest in our health service to stop people getting sick, but when they do get sick we need to ensure that they can access timely & appropriate care.
  3. Ensure that every child leaving school can read & write by targeting welfare savings at those with learning difficulties & those from vulnerable homes
