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.”

One opportunity to have your say in Meath County Council is through the making of submissions on the various plans that drafted.

The latest one that was up for consultation was the Draft Climate Action Strategy.

It can be difficult to find the time to do this however it is a great way to contribute your ideas particularly so if you have a passion or expertise in an area.

While I would have liked to have spent longer on my recent submission on the Draft Climate Action Strategy I did make a few points that included -

- The belief that we should try to exceed the 40% carbon emission reduction by 2030 that the Action Strategy has pledged. Aside from believing that 40% is not nearly enough, the strategy is setting itself up to be bold and ambitious so I believe it should exceed rather than just mirror EU targets for 2030.

- That I am uncomfortable with the level of mention that business gets in the document and particularly how careful thought was put in so the Draft strategy "supports the key elements of Meath County Councils Economic Development Strategy". For me I feel this is the wrong way around and would surely inhibit any Draft Climate Strategy.

- That solid targets need to be set in terms of % when it comes to areas such as transport. While specifics may come with the final strategy I believe that you need specific targets to aim for as early as possible in order to focus the mind and be ambitious. While I only mentioned this for transport, it is something I believe the strategy should do across the board.

Finally, next up for consultation and submissions (8 have been made thus far) is the DRAFT VARIATION (NO. 1) OF THE TRIM DEVELOPMENT PLAN 2014-2020. If you haven't had a chance to look at this, the deadline for this is 4pm Friday.

The suspected petrol bomb attack on the Trim Court House brings up the conversation on the need for community CCTV in built-up urban areas.

This was discussed at the last meeting of Trim Municipal Meeting and it is expected to be something that will hopefully be looked at much more closely in the very near future.

From my understanding one of the first and perhaps unforeseen obstacles that first had to be overcome was around GDPR and who would manage and keep safe data recorded.

As it stands it is likely that this will be the council and not the Gardaí. (If there is of course an incident that needs investigation, then material will be handing over to the Gardaí to use accordingly). And as a result, quite a deal of work has had to go in to resolve the issues that this throws up. This I believe though is is close to resolution meaning that this can move on to the next step.

Lets hope it will be resolved soon, CCTV is paramount for policing, especially when people are afraid to report

Great news Ronan !

Oh my gosh! When did this happen?

Do we really want to live in a world where someone is always watching you?

With a fairly prolonged dry spell now broken remember that every time the weather breaks, the roads can be treacherous.

Oil that may have been spilt over the last couple of weeks may have collected and dried and with rain will now make some corners as slippery as ice rinks. Meanwhile hot weather can affect tyre pressure too, meaning grip can be affected.

Always remember to treat the first couple of days of rain after a hot spell like you would the first icy morning of winter and mind yourself out there.

While it is unlikely to include the one below, road markings will be carried out at various locations around the municipal district in the coming weeks.

So if there are any final ideas on locations that need to be redone or added for consideration, feel free to shoot them my way.

I have a few already that I will be forwarding onto the District Engineer.

Serious weather for a lovely afternoon in Longwood. Bouncy slides, face painting, a bbq, soccer shots, llamas and lambs, duck race and a guess the combined weight of a pair of sheep. What else does a family day out need? Managed to still lead the hang tough on leaving (even if it meant) bately being able to hold an ice cream cone after:)!

And most of all, all for a good cause fundraising for a local community hall.

#LE19 - We’re so very proud of every one of our 58 candidates and their teams who campaigned their hearts out up & down the country.

Some candidates came very close to taking seats & that in itself is a fabulous outcome given that so many were running for the 1st time. #SocDems
