I’m sorry I didn’t have the opportunity to say it in person, Patricia, but best of luck today! I have no doubt that you’ve conveyed to the people of Cork South Central just how competent and capable you are as a public representative. The wealth of experience in aspects of the health service and in interacting with multi-disciplinary teams across so many of our public services gives you a unique insight into the operation of a City Council and will mean you would be an enormously efficient councillor. That coupled with your wonderful listening skills makes your candidacy so special. No doubt anyone who’s encountered your campaign will have recognized that. Good luck! 💜
