My Vision for Tipperary:

A just Tipperary, with dignity for all. Equal ease of access to quality services for all members of society not just the wealthy.

My Priorities:

There are many extremely concerning issues today e.g. climate change, drugs in our communities, the abolition of Irish water etc. but I believe Health and Housing have to be the top priorities of any candidate in this election. The current government is presiding over the worst crisis ever to be seen in this country in both Health and Housing.
