Why I got involved in politics

We need change. More of the same won't do.  I want to work at grassroots level, seeking direct input from local residents about their concerns and issues.

My priorities

Addressing the housing crisis with more social and affordable housing.

Raising mental health awareness and wellbeing.  Address growing concerns with the rise of drug/alcohol and gambling addictions.

Dealing with the causes of antisocial behaviour.

Tackling youth unemployment and offering young people more options and opportunities.

Improve recreational and sporting facilities and assisting community and voluntary groups to access local and national funding.

Better public infrastructure especially our road and water systems.

To make all amenities and public facilities more accessible for people with disabilities and wheelchair users - e.g. parking and pedestrian crossings.

Seek direct input from local residents on local issues.

My background

I come from a proud tradition of public service, my late Uncle Ned Brennan, served as a Labour member of south Tipperary County Council  for over 30 years and my late father Mick Brennan had a long history as a trade unionist who helped foster excellent industrial relations for his Avonmore/Tirlan colleagues.
