Candidate for Dublin West

Aengus currently works as a policy analyst, which has given him an acute sense of some of the shortcomings in Irish society.

Aengus knows Dublin West is a brilliant place to live. Aengus wants Dublin West to be the best place to grow up, to do business, to raise children and to prosper that it can be, and to help our community grow together.

He believes that we deserve to have high expectations from our leaders, and public services that truly serve the public. To do that we need trustworthy, honest, and accountable politicians, and we don’t have that today.

The Defence Forces are the only public servants in the State who are expected to give up their very lives for the country, and at the same time are forbidden from protesting their working conditions.

Most soldiers, air personnel and sailors work in excess of 60 hours per week, with a starting salary of €18,458. That's not a typo - €350 per week gross.

One in five Defence Forces personnel are on Family Income Supplement.

Successive governments have abused the unique position of the Defence Forces personnel, and as a result they are, as a group, the most poorly served members of the public service.

My late Grandfather served in the Army before and during the Emergency, and my family has a long historic connection to the Defence Forces since independence.

I was proud to stand with WPDF - Standing up for our loved ones in the Defence Forces and retired soldiers today outside Leinster House in their solemn and dignified demonstration. Supporting our most vulnerable people is a basic principle of mine, and it shocks me to have to include our army in that category.
