Trim Councillor and General Election Candidate for Meath West

Having spent several years working with an Irish charity overseas, Ronan returned home to Meath and became an English and History secondary school teacher at St Patrick’s Classical School, Navan.

His focus as a teacher has always been on helping young-adults become the best they can be, and he also co-ordinates the cross-country and athletics teams at school.

Back living in Trim with his wife and two young children, Ronan has a BA from Galway and MSc in Sustainable Development in Dublin.

“I look forward to meeting people and discussing how social democratic policies will help them and their kids into the future.”

With a lot talk about pressing other people's buttons when votes are taking place in government chambers, when it comes to the local level this thankfully doesn't occur.

We currently don't have electronic voting in our county or municipal chamber so when votes take place it is done by roll call and you need to be in the room when the vote begins. Your name gets called and you respond by calling out your vote.

Finally glad to have gone very local with eggs, after the arrival of some rescue hens.

They all seem to be adapting well to life after the battery. @littlehill.animalsanctuary

That's one of the more interesting wedding presents! The security against foxes and pine martins is a joint collaboration:).

Loving the coop! Is that one of your Dad's genius designs?

It's fab! Predator fence is looking good too 😊

One way to explain the current Brexit deal:

1. Watch Groundhog Day.
2. Imagine that instead of Teresa May as Bill Murray, we now have Boris Johnson.
3. The groundhog is the deal (this hasn't changed even if it is a different groundhog playing the original groundhog unless the groundhog stays in its burrow and gets a tariff refund).

Finally imagine you...
4. ...are Boris Johnson and hope that no one has ever watched Groundhog Day and therefore thinks what you've come up with is genius.
5. ...are the Irish government/EU and pretend you have never watched Groundhog Day and applaud Boris for such a clever and original idea so everyone can save face.

I now hate the word 'deal' because I hear it about a million times a day

Close to twenty years ago, I was lucky to backpack from Europe through into Asia for more than 9 months.

During this time I met so many incredibly kind, warm and welcoming locals who went out of their way to help me.

Though there was not one country where I felt unwelcome, amongst the peoples who stood out were the Turks and Kurds.

I spent nearly two months travelling through Turkey and the Kurdish majority areas in the eastern part of the county and between invites for tea, picnics, pool or giving me a roof for the night, the people were incredible. It is a memory I will never forget.

Sadly, though while both ethnic groups have co-existed at times, even during this trip the tensions between both groups was never far below the surface.

That is why what is happening now in Northern Syria as Turkish troops and Turkish backed Syrian militia; which has also led to the movement north of Syrian troops is so deeply depressing and the betrayal of Trump and the US (not to mention the inaction of he UN, NATO and EU) of the previous Kurdish allies, is shameful.

An uneasy peace existed here. ISIS combatants that Kurdish ground forces had defeated were being held prisoner, as their countries of origin refused to take them back. Yet, life was manageable for the people and a normality had returned. And then US and UK troops pulled out; Syrian air space opened up; and civilians yet again have become the victims.

As a footnote in 3rd History classes around the country around this time, teachers are finishing World War II with the students. Those familiar with this time of history will know the fate of many countries particularly in central and eastern Europe who thought that their allies would not forsake them only to be left. 80 years later and history is repeating itself.

Lovely piece Ronan. It's shocking to see innocent civilians let down and exposed. I realise it's a complex region, such a shame to see what's happening

Two really interesting events today that I was glad to be involved in.

First was at the Comhairle na nÓg AGM in the Arboyne today. The Comhairle are the local council for young people and it was good to both hear their work, particularly in the area of RSE, and get quizzed from them in some round table conversations.

The second was the first step in an accessibility study in Summerhill that I have been working with Summerhill Development Group and Summerhill Tidy Towns on. Next week we hope to roll out the accessibility walk about as a first step to make the village much more mobility friendly.

If you are in Summerhill and you'd like to get involved please get in touch.

Mr @RichardbrutonTD believes the carbon tax will force people to change their behaviour. How can we change if there's no infrastucture e.g. many towns + villages across Ireland don't have adequate (or any) public transport links,therefore forced to use cars. #socdems #budget2020
