General Election 2020

Ronan Moore


Social Democrats


Meath West


Secondary school teacher, author and councillor





Moore is a secondary school teacher in Navan and a part-time author. He was elected to Meath County Council in May 2019. He has a Masters in Sustainable Development and previously worked overseas in West Africa with Trócaire for several years. He has volunteered with Trim Family Resource Centre, Enfield Development Group, Trim Athletics Club, Comhairle na nÓg and Meath’s Together for Yes campaign.

Question Time


Why should someone vote for you?

I am a hard-working, progressive voice that offers the potential for real change in Meath West. I want to help create an Ireland where our work and life is balanced, where our mental and physical health is prioritised and where we all do better, together.


What is your number one priority for your constituency?

High quality health, housing and transport infastructure and a sustainable environment are as essential in Meath West as they are elsewhere and I believe the Social Democrats are best placed to deal with these issues.


What one thing would you like to do in your first 100 days of the new Dáil if you are elected?

Given the crisis across a number of our public services and the failures of vital public policy, it would be the case of trying to get as much done in as short a time as possible. At a bare minimum, we would immediately legislate for a nationwide rent-freeze and move to establish a National Housing Delivery Agency.
