I am married to Paddy O’ Mahony and we have two sons, John and Philip. I am the daughter of the late Phil and Teresa Murphy and sister of Dan, Phil and the late Con Murphy. I grew up in a very politically active household and got involved in political campaigns from an early age.
Having worked for many years in the Post Office and in the area of special needs I now work fulltime as a County Councillor in order to give 100% to the people I represent.
“Working with people as well as for people” is my motto.
I am a working member of St. Vincent de Paul so between that that and my work as a Councillor I can see first hand the pressure people, from all walks of life are enduring and how hard people are finding it to make ends meet.
As advertised locally.
I am always willing to call to your house to discuss any issues you may have in the privacy of your own home.
