I'M RERUNNING
FOR EUROPE

BECAUSE EVERYBODY MATTERS

ABOUT ME

I grew up and raised my three daughters in Tramore, Co Waterford. Following a life of activism for Greenpeace International, I was elected as a Senator in 2016, and to the European Parliament to represent Ireland South in 2019. I am a surf instructor, ecologist and green entrepreneur.

 

I was the European Parliament’s lead negotiator for the EU’s 8th Environment Action Programme, setting out Europe’s ambitious environmental agenda to 2030.

 

As a member of the Delegation on Mercosur, I have opposed and delayed this disastrous trade deal that would encourage further deforestation in the Amazon, and cripple Irish farming by allowing cheap produce from South America to flood the European market.

MY PRIORITIES

1

CLIMATE, NATURE & ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION

With my lifelong record in environmental activism and my experience as a Senator and MEP, I want to make sure climate, nature and environment remains high on Europe’s agenda. Since 2019 I have led the fight in Europe to protect our seas, to restore nature, for ambitious climate action, and to tackle toxic plastic pollution.

2

SOCIAL JUSTICE & WELLBEING

Protecting the vulnerable and creating a more caring Europe is what drives me. I was the lead negotiator for laws that shift Europe’s measures of progress beyond GDP towards valuing human and environmental well-being.

3

CLEAN ENERGY, ZERO POLLUTION, ZERO WASTE

We need to transition away from fossil fuels to clean renewable energy which is safe, secure and financially stable. We need to ensure our air, water and soil, on which we depend, is clean and healthy. We need to reduce waste in every part of the economy, especially toxic plastic waste.

CAN YOU SUPPORT MY REELECTION?
