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.
