Elected Cllr in local election 2019. Fine Gael candidate for Roscommon-Galway in the General Election.
From Poolboy, Ballinasloe and a student of Scoil Mhuire, I’m an Arts graduate of NUI Galway with a Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Languages for Business. With training in export marketing and Diploma in Project Management.
I come from a farming background with a love of the countryside and rural life. I’ve worked in Dublin for Enterprise Ireland supporting Irish businesses and in Science Foundation Ireland funding excellence in research at 3rd level. I moved back to Ballinasloe 3 years ago and joined NUI Galway, currently I am involved as a project manager Innovation in Healthcare and I work with Irish start-ups and staff within the HSE.
The Ballinasloe municipal area has a strong agricultural sector, fantastic schools and a great community of clubs and we are also facing challenges. I want to develop East Galway as a location for future development & investment.
