Is this your first time running? Yes

What are your reasons for running as a young person in politics?

I joined the Workers’ Party to fight against privatisation and to build strong publicly owned services and infrastructure. We take inspiration from successful policies elsewhere in Europe, like the Vienna housing model. Eilis Ryan has been strong and effective on the council, so I want to work with her to fight for these issues.
