About Mark

The eldest son of Trish and the late Noel of the Thatch Pub, with his two younger siblings, Niamh and James, he also helps his mother out in the family run pub when he can.

Over the last five years, Mark has built a strong working relationship with all the county council team as well as several ministers including Min. for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys. This has helped secure funding for numerous capital projects in our area. Including being Mayor of the district and presiding over the tricky application process that led to the allocation of over 14 million to Carrick-On-Suir. This good working relationship with my peers will ensure Mark can serve you to the best of my abilities.
