Robert Troy

Spokesperson on Children

I come from a family with a strong tradition in community activity and volunteer work. My parents Paddy & Sarah were involved in many community groups most notable the GAA and Community Games. My Uncle, Fr. Ulic Troy is a former Chairman of a Westmeath County Board.

I went to Emper National school and then onto St. Finian’s College before going to work in Dublin. Having worked in Dublin for 5 years I returned to take over as Postmaster in Ballynacargy.

Since my election we have seen many improvements in our area and I am delighted to have worked with so many voluntary organisations to achieve this. I have also worked for individuals in confidence in personal matters always respecting the integrity of peoples concerns and ensuring the best possible outcome.
