It has been a great honour representing the people and communities of West Cork over the last 10 years. As a West Cork County Councillor and County Mayor I have gained an in-depth understanding to the needs and issues of people, young and old and the many challenges we all face together. With this experience and your support, I wish to continue working as your Independent voice at a grass roots level representing the people and not the party. I am determined to face the challenges with the same confidence you have placed in me since 2009. I look forward to meeting you in the coming weeks, to discuss and learn more about the matters that are of concern to you and if I can be of any assistance please contact me.
