A health researcher, I have expertise in mental health & health policy. I have a masters in EU Politics & Law from UL. My research coupled with my experience working with community orgs & local health services has given me a deep understanding of the issues affecting the people of Limerick City.
At 25, I stood as an independent candidate for Limerick City East in the 2014 Local elections. I was my own DOR, I devised and wrote all materials e.g policy, manifesto, press statements, social media. I won 467 first preference votes, withstood 11 counts, missing the last seat by approx 100 votes.
