Film Industry professional with a background in Accountancy and a Legal Qualification. Living in Rathfarnham and married with 2 grown up children. With deep roots in local community work over many years, I have a strong and passionate interest in my Country and what it stands for.
I took an active interest in local politics running in the local elections in 2009 (Rathfarnham Ward) for Fianna Fáil. Effective government needs good and active opposition. We don’t have that. I am committed to a political landscape that brings all people into politics that offers a new vision and is more inclusive.
For that reason I joined AONTÚ led by Peadar Tóibín. Its core principles of LIFE, UNITY and ECONOMIC JUSTICE offer a new and vibrant platform that moves our political landscape away from the traditional approach of the past. I was proud to run in the 2019 Local Elections for Aontú in the Rathfarnham-Templeogue Electoral Area. I will work hard to develop and promote the community I live in and to address the concerns of all the constituents.

He serves as representative of the Residents of Hermitage on the Metro South West Combined Residents Associations (36) for better transport in Dublin South west. He enjoys walking.
