Dublin University Panel


Dublin University graduates have a proud record of electing articulate, passionate and radical candidates to represent them in the Seanad.

Outstanding former Senators such as Mary Robinson and Mary Henry have used the Seanad as a vital platform to make valuable contributions to important debates on national and international issues. They have been a great inspiration to me and I hope that my own record will stand as firmly as theirs. 

Over the past thirteen years it has been a great privilege and honour to represent the Dublin University Panel and I am very proud of all the joint and sole amendments, bills and contributions I have been able to bring to the Upper House, and am proud of having played in a part in many campaigns such as the successful repeal of the eighth amendment in 2018. 

My professional life and activist passion have been dedicated to campaigning for a radical social agenda. Thank you to all who voted for me in the 2020 Seanad election – I will work to keep justice, equality, education and vital reform issues on the legislative agenda.  

Thank you very much for all the feedback, suggestions and years of support!
