1-2 paragraphs from the candidate on their reasons for running as a young person in politics:
I have been an active member of Fianna Fáil for the last number of years. I have immersed myself in voluntary work in both the parish and in the community and gained the knowledge of what our town needs to grow further and stronger both economically and socially. I am young and enthusiastic and have many ideas I wish to bring forward. I also feel it is vital that all people are equally represented at the table and I stand on behalf of all women and young people in my area.
