Ben Ward

Local Election Candidate

Electoral Area: Tullow

Carlow Council

Ben Ward

My name is Ben Ward and I’m a Fine Gael candidate in the next local elections for the Tullow electoral area. I went to primary school in Ballon where I played GAA and soccer for many years. I then attended Tullow community school where my interest in politics and the local community began. I’m currently completing my studies in Economics, Politics, and Philosophy in UCD.

Tullow needs a fresh and energetic voice who’s going to be proactive in trying to make our community a better place for people to live, work, and own businesses in. I’m putting myself forward to represent the people and the community that I’ve grown up around my whole life. I’m passionate about affecting positive change in our area through pragmatic politics. Being a young person, I want to be a voice for young people on the council and campaign for issues that affect young people.

Our family business, Wards Greengrocer and Health store, has been trading in the square in Tullow for over 25 years now. I understand the challenges and the opportunities that small businesses can have for our community, and I want to support and incentivise business in our area.

I’m passionate about making our community a better place by improving our public facilities and local infrastructure, providing better recreational and exercise amenities, and tackling anti-social behaviour to make stronger, safer communities.
