Why I got involved in politics

I am an early years teacher in Ratoath nd have made many notable links to the community through this.

On a national level I am an activist for Siptu supporting 'A New Deal' for the early years sector and this has thrown me into the political arena.

I want to help my local area achieve its full potential for the community.

My priorities

My main priorities for Ratoath LEA are:

  • Recreational facilities for both young and old.
  • A play park and open green space that can be accessed by safe roads and paths.
  • A greater focus on more services within our community especially childcare, transport and health.
  • Greater provisions for older people, families and children.

My background

I am a working mother of 3. I have a BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Education and Care. I have run the local community early service in Ratoath for 8 Years.

We have won various awards and have been featured in print media, featured on radio and TV for our pioneering approach to early years.

I am an activist for SIPTU for better pay and conditions for the Early Years sector and have featured on various media outlets regarding this.
