Kerry County Council

Cllr Michael Foley

I live in Ballylongford with my wife and two children.  I am now employed in full time politics for the past 12 years.  I was Parliamentary/Ministerial Assistant to Jimmy Deenihan for nine years when he was Minister, Junior Minister and TD.  Currently I am Ministerial Assistant to Minister Brendan Griffin TD, Minister for State at Tourism and Sport.  I worked in both the Private and Public Sector where I gained a vast amount of practical experience and knowledge in both national and local politics.  I am in contact with Local and Government Departments on a daily basis making representations on issues in Social Welfare, Medical Cards, Housing, Agriculture, Higher Education Grants and the Fair Deal Scheme to name but a few.

Working in the coalface of politics over the years I know the issues affecting the people of North Kerry.  With your support I would like to bring this knowledge and experience to Kerry County Council and continue representing the people in my locality.

As your local Councilor I will work tirelessly for you to promote local issues and stand up for what matters
