“He is a great communicator, is passionate about his work, and committed to bettering communities and society in general.   

“This was evident in his work as a county councillor representing the people of Tipperary and has been built upon further since being elected TD for Tipperary in February.

“I have no doubt he will do an excellent job, and that he will use the position to provide a platform for the voices of the public to be heard.”
