Jennifer Carroll MacNeill, TD
I am a TD for the Dún Laoghaire Constituency, elected in February 2020. I am Vice Chair of the Fine Gael Parliamentary Party and Spokesperson for Equality. I am also Vice Chair of the Justice Committee as well as being a member of the Public Accounts Committee and the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement Committee. I was also a member of the Special Dáil Committee on Covid prior to its disbandment into sectoral Committees.
Previously I was a Councillor for the Killiney-Shankill ward. Since first being elected as a public representative, I have prioritised families experiencing homelessness and domestic abuse awareness. I have supported, and personally assisted a number of homeless women with small children to find appropriate accommodation. I have also worked closely with Coercive Control Ireland to raise awareness of this issue. Coercive Control became a criminal offence in January 2019.
Since being elected as a TD, I have continued to work for my constituents at a national level, drawing on my decade of experience working in Government on policy and legislation. Reducing carbon emissions by protecting and developing public transport facilities and better recycling and waste management are also part of my local agenda.
I am passionate about politics as a tool to improve social justice, opportunity and fairness. My vision for the future of Ireland is to continue to work through Covid, rebuild a strong economy, full employment, at the centre of Europe and a compassionate country that supports its people. My values are integrity, compassion, respect, equality and family. I am hard-working, determined and empathetic.
