Local Election Candidate for Cork City South West

Ciarán lives in Ballincollig with his young family.

Self Employed throughout the recent recession he knows only too well how it feels to worry constantly about meeting mortgage repayments and health & childcare costs.
As a barrister and lecturer, he wants to use his skillset to ensure that everyone has access to affordable housing, childcare and a functioning health service.

“I joined the Social Democrats to help attain this and, also due to the track records of RóisÍn Shorthall and Catherine Murphy, two of the most credible politicians in the State. Together we campaigned successfully for YES and I hope to continue this pattern of change at local level”.

If you have any suggestions about issues affecting you, your family or the local community he would love to hear from you.

“I believe that having transparent politics is extremely important. I am passionate about developing an Anti-Corruption Agency as I know it will ensure that our public bodies are being run properly.”

Best of luck

Best of luck Ciaran!

Good luck tomorrow, I’ll be voting at 7am!

Well done on a very hard fought campaign Ciaran. We’re lucky to have a man of your integrity, unwilling to compromise yourself for political gain. The people of Ballincollig would be lucky to have a representative who is honest, hard-working and genuine to the core. Good luck Ciarán! 💜💪🏻
