Born and raised in Rialto, I have lived there all my life.
I am currently a Labour Party Senator on the Administrative Panel in the 26th Seanad. Before that, I was a member of Dublin City Council for the South West Inner City (Dublin 8) from 2009—2020. Between 2014 and 2019 I was also a Councillor for Crumlin-Kimmage due to changes to the boundaries of the council wards.
Before I became a Senator, I worked as a teacher in the Further Education sector.
As a local representative on Dublin City Council since 2009, I believe in an open, progressive and pragmatic approach to politics, and worked across party lines to ensure we deliver the best for our community.
I led the campaign to build Weaver Park, working across party lines to deliver the first park in Dublin 8 in over 100 years.
I have worked to make sure that our planning laws encourage vibrant sustainable communities, focusing on sporting facilities and artistic workspaces in the city.
I have also been active in ensuring that we have a sustainable approach to planning and that no one type of accommodation is over concentrated in one area.
An activist first and foremost, I worked with locals from all parties and none on campaigns to achieve Marriage Equality and Repeal of the 8th Amendment.
I will continue this work as a Senator and I look forward to fighting for a progressive, inclusive society on a national level.
