Fine Gael
Party 1


Incumbent :

Election history:

I ran for the first time in the local elections in 2014, to represent the Rathgar/Rathmines ward, and was elected to the Dáil in 2016 in Dublin Bay South.

Priorities:

  1. If both parents were allowed to share the standard maternity benefit, I believe we could make huge advances towards a more equal society for all.
  2. The eighth amendment is a very divisive issue, but I firmly believe it should be repealed for the safety and equality of Irish men and women.
  3. As a pharmacist I see a lot of drug use & addiction, which only intensifies as soon as someone gets a criminal conviction. I favour decriminalisation.
