It’s 6 weeks to the local elections on Friday 23rd May. On this day you will chose who will represent you on your local council and make decisions regarding planning and local services provision for the next 5 years. In my case, in my local area, Beaumont – Donaghmede (in green below) 9 local candidates will be chosen. I am one of those candidates. I’m running for the Labour party in the area along with my colleague and sitting councillor Brian McDowell.
I’m a late entrant into the race having only been selected in February. Unfortunately, I won’t get to meet everyone but I hope these pages will help you ‘meet’ me and get a sense of who I am and what I’m about.
Who am I?
One of the first things people want to know is who are you? what do you do? are local are you? In brief , I’m a former teacher who now workings full time in the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation or INTO as we normally call it. I’ve been living in the area for almost 20 years – Ashcroft in Raheny and now in Larch Hill on the Oscar Traynor Rd. I’m originally from Monaghan. The video below will tell more.
