“Politics is about empowering communities and affording people the space to work together to improve services and facilities for residents. I have a good knowledge of the issues facing local neighbourhoods and I work tirelessly in an effort to enhance our community.”
Tá a fhios ag ionadaithe tofa Shinn Féin faoi na deacrachtaí atá ag daoine toisc go bhfuil na deacrachtaí sin againn féin. Oibríonn muid sna pobail a ndéanann muid ionadaíocht orthu. Tá muid inár gcónaí in aice leis na hoibrithe a bhíonn á gcosaint againn. Tá muidne ag taobhú libh.
Tógann ár gcuid ionadaithe tofa abhaile leo an meántuarastal tionsclaíoch. Téann an chuid eile i dtreo oibre toghcheantair.
Tá ár gcuid ionadaithe tofa tar éis a chruthú arís agus arís eile gur féidir leo spriocanna a bhaint amach – i bpobail, sa Dáil, i rialtas sna Sé Chontae agus san Eoraip.
“From a young age, I have had a keen interest in Ireland’s cultural heritage of arts and music. I am currently a voluntary board member of the Civic Theatre. Its mission is to mount an artistic and challenging programme of contemporary and classical work in theatre, dance, opera and music for the community of South Dublin County.
I have been active in the campaign to achieve equality for members of the LGBT community and for their children. I have spoken out in relation to marriage equality and various other issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans people in Ireland.
I also work closely with the Walkinstown-Greenhills Resource Centre. The facility coordinates a local approach to drug prevention and provides support services to young people who are affected by drug and alcohol abuse.”
