He was elected to Limerick County Council in 2004 and subsequently topped the pole in 2009. A member of the Glen GAA club and Aghea Drama Group John is popular in the local community. Newcastlewest is a primary district in West Limerick and John is committed to keeping it at the top of the agenda in the new Limerick County Council.
