Local Election Candidate for Cobh

Ken is a married father of two girls. He lives in Cobh and plays an active role in the local community through several organisations including Tidy Towns and Cobh People’s Regatta.

He is an experienced campaigner at local and national level, the latest example of this being the key leadership role he played in Yes Equality Cork in the Marriage Equality Referendum.

Ken has been involved in politics all his life and believes that we need a new type of politics based on a vision of open government and the type of public services we as a people so badly need.  He believes the SocDems under the leadership of Catherine Murphy and Róisín Shortall can deliver on that vision while maintaining a strong pro-enterprise economy.

Even though all my #LE19 posters are down since last weekend, I'm paranoid I may have missed one. If you see my ugly mug still up a poll around #Carrignavar #Whitechurch #Watergrasshill or #Knockraha please let me know so I can take it down today. Thanks in advance. ... See MoreSee Less

There are under three hours left till polls close. If you haven't voted yet and live in #Cobh #Carrigtwohill #Glounthaune #LittleIsland #Knockraha #Carrignavar #Whitechurch or #Watergrasshill then I would really appreciate your No.1 this evening or if that's already committed your highest available preference.

I believe I can be a highly effective representative for all of the Municipal District but this can only happen if I get enough votes to be elected especially No. 1s. I know based on the reaction I've got on campaign trail a lot of you would like to see me elected, with your No. 1 vote we can potentially make this wish become a reality!

I appreciate any preference but for transfers to make a real difference, I need enough #Cobh 1s.

If you want to see me elected in #LE19 then biggest help you can give me is a No. 1 vote.

Next best after that is encouraging your family & friends to give me their No. 1s as well!

The rule about liquids on planes has been in place since 2006, yet every time I fly someone has a 3-litre bottle of Country Spring that they're shocked they can't bring on board.

If I had one piece of advice for journos in a increasingly shite driven world it’s this: Just because a story is not well read or liked or clicked does not mean it’s not an important story. If it revealing something in the public interest, keep at it.

Windy but dry conditions for this weekends regatta in #Cobh.
one of the oldest Regattas in Euope.
Paintings from 1738 show club yachts carrying out manoeuvres in the harbour so it could potentially be the oldest regatta in the world.
