Paddy was first elected as a public representative in 1985, and has been returned at every local election since. A farmer by profession, he is married to Carmel and they have six children. Going forward, he is focused on attracting significant, meaningful jobs to the area and also he is intent upon achieving better prices for farmers for their produce. In terms of rural security he is working to ensure that there is a strong Garda presence locally. He is also interested in seeing that legal aid is made available to those most in need and believes it should be means tested in the interests of best practice. A strong local voice, he can be depended upon to put the best interests of all within his electoral area who seek his assistance.
