You are very welcome to my website
It is indeed an honour to represent the people of Dublin North in the Oireachtas. I was first elected as a TD to Dáil Éireann in 2007 and I was one of the youngest elected members of the house. In March 2011 I was appointed to Seanad Éireann, and held my seat in the elections of that year. I have the privilege of being the leader of the opposition in the Seanad. I believe I bring a great amount of enthusiasm with a good hard work ethic and my 15 years of experience in the Financial Services sector have given me a sound background in dealing with my daily activities in the Leinster House.
I want my website to be as interactive and informative as possible. I have links to my Facebook page and my Twitter account as I try to keep in contact with most people using the various social media outlets. I welcome any feedback you might have and look forward to hearing from you about anything that you might have on your mind.
You can meet with me or talk to me through my office in Leinster house, Kildare St, Dublin 2. Alternatively you can ring me at 01-6183802.
Thanks for taking the time for visiting my Website. I hope it has helped you in some small way.
I look forward to hearing from you.
