Issues & Concerns

The ongar ward has the potential to become one of the most environmentally sustainable and family friendly areas in Dublin.
To achieve this, I believe that these are the the core policy issues that can deliver this.


Affordable housing

We need a housing market that works for everyone by creating enough social & affordable housing to meet the current needs in our area and longer-term plans to ensure that the current housing crisis will not repeat.

Facilities for young people

Dublin 15 has one of the youngest populations in the entire country. I will work to ensure that Fingal Council and the Department of Education plan and build enough primary and secondary schools in the area and that there are facilities in place for young people..

Sustainable Transport

Our bus services need to get better – not worse. I will oppose any proposals that leave communities isolated with a lesser bus service.

We need to see the Maynooth commuter line upgraded to DART standard before it reaches maximum capacity.

We must build safe cycling infrastructure if we want to get people out of cars.
