Incumbent : No

Main message to voters:

Europe is at a dangerous juncture. It faces rising far right extremism and climate crisis, driven by the politics of 'centrism' - which has left many millions of Europeans behind. Only radical, progressive solutions can push back the rise of the far right. The WP provides that.

Election history:

I ran for Dublin City Council and was elected on my first run in 2014, aged 29. Since then, I have been the leading voice for public housing, and against the sell-off of public land, on the city council.

Priorities:

  1. State solutions to the climate crisis. The private sector cannot solve the climate crisis, nor should it be allowed to profit for it. Only we can.
  2. Workers' rights: all workers should have the right to protection by a trade union, to prevent a race to the bottom on wages.
  3. A public economy: instead of an economy driven by private greed, through public companies we can make the economy work for us, to meet our challenges.
