Politics

Looking Forward

I am running for the Green Party, for my daughter and all Irish children. We all appreciate the major problems our children are going to have to deal with, but perhaps less apparent is that the solutions for them already exist. The next generation needs leaders who are not afraid to lead them into these changing times. My priority is the environment; without healthy soil nothing exists: trees, vegetables, grass, grazing animals and their produce.

I am a professional surfer who has returned to the land to start a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm near Lahinch, as I believe wholehearted this offers the most realistic, scalable solution to the issues surrounding rural life in Ireland. My conviction has led me to offer myself as a Green Party candidate in the 2016 General Election. Politics was never my intention, but there is a responsibility on us all to be part of the solution, and I will take every step, no matter how challenging, to implement solutions that will safeguard our children’s future.

    I got your flyer through the letterbox, wasn’t here to meet you, at work. You talk about local community sustainability which is what I believe in. One small question, why was your flyer printed in West Meath, are there no local printers in your locality of Lahinch or Co. Clare? Yes there is employment on the land but not for everyone, I quote the wife of the KATE John B Keane, unless we shop in our local shop, there will be no local shop.

    Your reputation goes before you, and I have heard nothing but positive things about you, if you advocate local sustainability then you need to practice it in all aspects of your campaign.

    Good luck with your campaign
