I have been a Councillor since 2011 representing the people of Mourne on the old Newry and Mourne Council and now on the Newry, Mourne and Down District Council. I have lived in Kilkeel all my life and as it is a fishing port I was delighted to join the board of Warrenpoint Harbour in 2011 as it gives me an insight on ha a large port works. I am very community based and enjoy working to help all sections of the community in the Mournes and I am impressed by the way Warrenpoint Harbour endeavours to look after the concerns of the people of Warrenpoint and supports local charities and schools.
