Local Election Candidate for Ennis
Chris is a law student in the National University of Ireland, Galway. He was President of the debating society in NUIG for the 2016/17 term. Chris firmly believes that the next generation of Irishmen and Irishwomen must stand up, speak out and be counted in the decisions being made now that will affect their futures.
Chris first became actively involved in politics during the Marriage Equality referendum before joining the Social Democrats. Currently the housing crisis, the mental health crisis plaguing young people particularly, and the governments inaction on climate change are what motivate him.
Chris was born and raised in Ennis and attended school locally. He played with Ennis Rugby Club for almost ten years before taking up martial arts with Clare jiu jitsu academy.
Chris believes passionately that Irish politics needs an injection of new people and fresh ideas to prepare Ireland for the 21st century. The Social Democrats are the right party for political renewal, economic justice and environmental defence and these are needed more than ever in the world we live in.”
