Any time.. any day...!
Why I got involved in politics
I used to be involved in local projects and community initiatives and my neighbour Dick Spring contacted me and asked me if I would get involved and contest the town council elections in 1999...
As a local politician I have a keen interest in the County but more so in my own municipal area. Obviously rejuvenating our towns and villages after covid is very important and also improving our tourism infrastructure.
I am a Labour County and town councillor since 1999... I've been successful in all local elections that I took part in... but was not successful in the 2007 general election.
I was mayor of Kerry in 2013 and mayor of Tralee on five occasions. I am married to Teresa a cork woman and we have 14 year old twins Millie and Mark.
Clubs and Committees
I am the chairperson of the warriors basketball club in Tralee. I am also the chairperson of the Gleann Lí secondary school, vice chairperson of Kerry education and training service.
I am a board member of Tralee Sports Complex, a board member of Kerry Airport and also a member of the economic SPC in Kerry County Council.
