Question Time


Why should someone vote for you?

We need better public representation in Tipperary; we need politicians who can find solutions; not just give out about issues.I am a solution-driven person.


What is your number one priority for your constituency?

Improved healthcare access and delivery, in particular provision of acute mental health services and support for community-based mental health services.


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

Food labeling is often confusing for the consumer. I would like to work on legislation that would make it clear to the consumer where and what they are buying when it comes to food.
