As your representative for Portlaoise, I am committed to ensuring that everyone has access to a warm home, a healthy future and a hearty community.

My priorities

Homes: I will ensure that opportunities to bring vacant buildings back into use as homes are maximised and homeowners have easy access to grants to make their homes warmer and more energy efficient.

Healthy Futures: I want to enhance access to quality, inclusive healthcare and safe, public spaces and facilities, and ensure that our air is clean and that our water and nature quality is protected.

Hearty Communities: I embrace strong community spirit and endeavour to make our communities more inclusive and vibrant spaces for people to live, work, rest and play and where our culture, built heritage and biodiversity are enhanced and protected.


I grew up in Ballinakill and now live in Abbeyleix. I studied Governance, Social Policy and Human Rights and I work remotely as Parliamentary Assistant to Laois-Offaly Minister Pippa Hackett.

I am active in a number of community roles as Board Director and Secretary of Ballinakill Community Development Association; Secretary of Portlaoise Rugby Club; Secretary of Laois Pride Committee; Secretary of Thornberry Residence Association, and member of Abbeyleix SEC.
