As one of the youngest candidates contesting this election, I will bring a fresh voice and energy to the Dáil. At the same time, I already have a proven track record of delivering positive change.


Since my election to the Seanad in 2011, I have earned a reputation as a caring, progressive and effective public representative.


My work on mental health, education, adoption rights, marriage equality and workers’ rights has won me respect across the political divide.


I am not interested in petty point-scoring or lazy criticism. Instead, I put in the hard graft needed to develop workable proposals and get them implemented.


It is this approach that has made me so effective as a Senator and will ensure I make an even greater impact as your Independent TD.
