Local Election Candidate for Galway City West

John moved to Galway in 2003. He was drawn to Galway, like so many others, because of its fantastic people and atmosphere. He fell in love with the City of Tribes and its strong sense of community, where he felt right at home and accepted in the melting pot of Galway’s diversity. He is proud to call himself an adopted Galwegian and having been so warmly welcomed as a blow-in he wishes to become a voice and vocal campaigner for those who suffer still from a decade living in austerity.

John has been involved with many campaigns including the marriage equality referendum, the 2016 general election campaign for Niall O’Tuathail and his continuing campaign as candidate for the next General Election, Anti-war campaigns, Galway Educate Together Second Level Campaign, Galway Pride and Repeal the 8th/Together for Yes campaign.

John is frustrated by the political gridlock and lack of progress achieved by his elected officials in Galway City Council. He believes that the key to change is listening to and engaging with the community. His central goal is to recognize and engage with the issues that affect local people; topics that affect communities such as affordable housing, public transport, cycling infrastructure and illegal dumping.

John warmly welcomes any of you to get in touch about any local issues, or likewise anyone who wants to get involved in his campaign or local activism.
