My Week in Politics

Another busy week over……..

Took Government Chief Whip Regina Doherty into Whitecross National School in Julianstown, to see the conditions and seek assistance with getting their new school build delivered as a matter of urgency.

Attended and presented at the Meath Business and Tourism Awards.

Lovely day spent with the family in Dublin Christmas shopping and experiencing the Gaiety Panto.

Full Council meeting in Navan…..lot’s of heated debate at this one!

Christmas tree bought at Berrill’s in Mornington…..never disappointed by their selection, price and service!

Through thick fog, I travelled to Lobinstown for a great evening of discussion with locals about their issues and needs.

Honoured and proud to attend Ireland’s first Secondary School to receive the White Ribbon Flag, as Chairwoman of the Board of Management at St Oliver’s Community College.

Thursday, had a quick trip to the orthodentist with Son No 1, then out to the beautiful Tankardstown House for the Boyne Valley Tourism Networking Event……great to hear wonderful stories from people like Ray Coyle of Tayto Park and Roger Pickett from The Cottages in Laytown who recently won the prestigious award for Best Beach House in Europe!

Took Son No 2 to the wonderful EM Panto Production of Snow White in the Droichead Arts Centre in Drogheda…..well done guys, a really great night was had by all!

Great night had by all at the East Meath Utd Manager’s Charity Match in Ministown…..well done to all involved, and for raising much needed funds for this year’s wonderful local charity, A Smile for Ryan.
