Over the past year I have given much consideration to my position within the Progressive Alliance on South Dublin County Council and it is with regret I must conclude that continuing in the Progressive Alliance is unsustainable for me . I am therefore withdrawing from the Progressive Alliance (Community Alliance . Sinn Féin and Labour) but will continue to work with the Community Alliance (Independents,Social Democrat and Green) with immediate effect.

I am very proud to represent the Clondalkin area as an elected Independent Councillor and will continue to work with Integrity and honesty for the best for Clondalkin.
