I am delighted to announce that I have been selected as the Local Election Candidate for Tullow. I was very involved in Carlow Together For Yes and put a lot of work into canvassing and fighting for rights for pregnant people. As a trans man, Iím also an outspoken activist for trans rights as I believe that a lot more needs to be done for the trans community in Ireland especially in regards to healthcare. In addition I'm actively involved in the fight for Palestinan rights. This will be the first election Iím running in and Iím excited to represent the area and the young people living in it.

Tullow has been riddled with neglectful politicians, the town and surrounding areas have been forgotten about as parish pump politics trumps. I think we need to all rise together and fight for an honest politics that deliver.
Iíve been involved in activism since I was a teenager and I want to fight for the next generation of politics. One that puts people first, one that ensures young people's voices are heard. Politics is not just for the few and I believe that young people are the key to challenging the inequality in Ireland. We need to fight for the many, not the few.

Thank you for reading and please consider giving me your vote in the local elections next May.

Constituency: Carlow
