Question Time


Why should someone vote for you?

If the public put their trust in me they can be assured of a hard-working representative who will work night and day to improve their living conditions.


What is your number one priority for your constituency?

It has to be the continued overcrowding in our hospitals, especially in Tipperary South General, while we continue to see Cashel Hospital closed at five in the evening. Another priority would have to be the establishment of a Drugs Task Force.


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

I would try to get a separate room opened in the A&E department in Clonmel Hospital for those who present with mental health issues. This has been requested by all the voluntary groups who are working in this area.
