Labour
Party 3


Incumbent : No

Main message to voters:

I believe my proven ability, commitment and experience as a parliamentarian and as a legislator can be of great benefit to Dublin, and of real value to quickly navigate the complex EU bureaucracy, where change happens slowly, but where a concentrated and tenacious approach pays dividends.

Election history:

Local Authority Councillor: South Dublin County Council 2004-07 Seanator & Labour Seanad leader 2007-11 Dublin South TD 2011-16 Minister of State for Primary Care 2012-14 Minister for Communications, Energy & Natural Resources 2014-16

Priorities:

  1. Action to combat climate change - make public transport an investment priority; incentivise retrofitting of homes with EU-backed financing models.
  2. Tackle inequalities - Leverage European Investment Bank funding to support Labour’s plan to build 80,000 housing units over a five-year period
  3. Protect workers’ rights & regulate the digital economy: ensure workers in a ‘gig economy’ and in precarious employment have full rights & protections.
