Why I got involved in politics

Over the past five years, my focus has been on engaging with community groups, including the local Access Group and Autism Friendly Clonakilty and EmployAbility West Cork, which assists disabled people in gaining meaningful employment. 

In the last election, I received over 500 votes, a promising start that reflects the desire for change in our community. I believe that together, we can build on this foundation and win a seat in the upcoming local elections. My involvement in national campaigns, such as running Disabled People for Choice during the campaign to Repeal the 8th and advocacy for abortion rights, has equipped me with invaluable experience. I have consistently lent my voice to advocate for marginalised communities. I want to use this experience to create a West Cork for all.

My priorities


Accessible and affordable housing for all

Climate Action 

It is crucial that we transition towards sustainable practices. I will prioritise implementing climate action strategies, including the integration of solar panels in local authority builds.

Public Transport and Safe and Active Travel 

I will champion improved public transportation in rural regions, reducing social isolation while contributing to our climate action goals. 

Safe and Active Travel

Enhancing our infrastructure to promote safe and active travel options. I will advocate for improvements for pedestrians and cyclists to encourage healthy and sustainable transport and promote tourism. 


Accessibility is a fundamental right that must be upheld. I will work tirelessly to ensure that our community is inclusive and accessible for everyone, regardless of their abilities
