Mary has been an active member of Galway County Council for the last 16 years. As well as holding the position of Chairperson on Galway County Council, she has also served on numerous committees including the Regional Health Forum and the Economic Development and Enterprise Strategic Policy Committee. It is because of this wealth of experience that she is acutely aware of the many issues facing the electorate at present.
Mary’s priorities include a new ED Dept. at University Hospital Galway, greater access to mental health facilities, creation of more jobs, supporting and medium size business, tackling the housing crisis and increasing rural services.
