Candidate for Roscommon-Galway

Ken is community driven and is looking to re-engage people with political action at a local level to help develop all our towns and villages and their hinterland as accessible, inclusive environments.

Ken is an ardent advocate for children with special needs and a person who believes the family must always come first. As a father of a little girl with special needs he has been active in promoting equality and awareness for all children through his advocate group called “Miles for Emma”.

He is one of four volunteers who launched a new initiative for Ballinasloe called “Accessibility Ballinasloe” – a community group formed to develop the Ballinasloe area as an accessible, inclusive environment which welcomes and supports everyone to live an independent and healthy life regardless of age or disability.

The no-nonsense approach of the Social Democrats has led him to believe that there is an alternative, based on challenging the system in a constructive and professional manner.

Congratulations ! Accessibility Ballinasloe and Fit Towns Ballinasloe was honoured at the annual IPB Pride of Place awards held in Cork City Hall on Saturday evening (November 17). The group were runners up in the Community Wellbeing Initiative-Holistic category. The judges were impressed by the evidence they saw of what can be achieved by a group of people dedicated to creating a better place to live in and life for all its residents and visitors. Those nominated joined with 800 community heroes from across the country at the awards which are operated in association with peace building charity Co-operation Ireland. The Pride of Place awards, described as the ‘Oscars of the Community Sector’, celebrates the often unsung work of community groups that selflessly work to make local neighbourhoods a better place to live in, work in or visit. Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr Mick Finn said: “Cork has a strong tradition of volunteerism and community action and we are delighted to be partners in the Pride of Place competition. The Gala Awards evening is a unique opportunity to celebrate the best in community development and recognises the invaluable efforts of those who glue our communities together”. Tom Dowling, Chairperson of Pride of Place, expressed his delight “that after 16 years the competition continues to embed itself in the very heart of the Island of Ireland's communities and gives them the opportunity to highlight the proud and amazing achievements of their place directly to the judges. I wish them continued success.” Peter Sheridan Chief Executive of Co-operation Ireland said: “Pride of Place deserves its position as one of the most prestigious community awards on the island of Ireland and Co-operation Ireland is delighted that it continues to go from strength to strength. “From Donegal through Northern Ireland and in counties all the way to Cork, communities have been reaping the rewards of the hard work carried out by the community groups who make Pride of Place what it is.” Caption: Representatives from Fit Towns Ballinasloe and Accessibility, Ballinasloe, Co Galway, receiving their award for the Community Wellbeing Initiative-Holistic category, at the IPB 'Pride of Place' awards ceremony in association with Co-operation Ireland at City Hall, Cork. ...

Fair play to Cappataggle Gaa
Our Little lady Emma (left) who has Special needs will never share a Camogie pitch with her older sister Claire but that didn't stop the Club from including her and presenting her with her very own Club t-shirt
This gesture speaks volumes for the Club...
