“I want to wish Martin the very best in his new role.

“He is a long-term community activist, with many years involved in a range of community groups and initiatives.

“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. 

“His ability to engage with communities will be a key skill that he will bring to this new role.

“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.”
