I live in the Parish of Ballymore/Mayglass with my wife Trish and our sons where my family have lived for over 200 years. I am involved in the local All Black’s Soccer Club where I have coached underage for a number of years. I am also an avid St. Fintan’s GAA Club fan, where my sons play at underage and senior level.
I have been involved in Fine Gael for over 25 years, and have been director of elections at local, Dail and European levels and have held officerships at district and constituency level. Being from a farming background, a family man, and a rural dweller, I am well aware of the many challenges facing our local community.
