Quote marks

Sustainable rural development is key to the lives of the people of Clare. I want farmers, and those at risk of flooding, protected sooner rather than later.

My priorities

Access to clean water is a human right and proper water infrastructure is the foundation for all development, Rural, Urban, Business, Social and Agricultural.

Warm, Energy Efficient Homes.

Reverse Climate Change and increase biodiversity.

Experience

I'm from a farm in West Clare with a background in Climate Education and Community Activism, and I’ve been volunteering in the community for years around cycling, sustainable transport, biodiversity. I’m the first woman and first Green elected to Clare County Council for North Clare. I became a Senator in May 2020 as a Taoiseach’s nominee to the Seanad. I bring a strong, rural, social justice and climate representation from someone with a lot of experience, as well as a rural female voice from west of the Shannon.
