On Monday 12th January 2015 I announced my intention to seek the Fianna Fáil nomination for Kildare North in the next General Election. Speaking at a meeting of our local organisation in Sallins, I was grateful for overwhelming support from both the public and party members.
Kildare North needs jobs, houses, investment and infrastructure and solutions at local and national levels. Having three out of four government TDs has been no help and it’s time for a fresh, constructive and challenging look at politics for Kildare North and nationally. I would relish the opportunity to contribute to building a new politics in this country and building a better future for Kildare.
Ultimately the local party members will decide on which candidate they want to represent them in the near future. I look forward to the challenge ahead. Tús maith leath na hoibre!
