Sport binds communities and plays a critical role in the promotion of physical activity for all. I am a keen sports player and have played a wide variation of sports with many of the local sports clubs throughout my youth to today. There have been multiple successes in recent years by many of our local sports clubs and players and we must lay the foundations for future success with continued investment and focus. I will endeavor to work with all of the local sport organisations to support the development of sport across the Dublin 15 Area and to assist them in any way I can.
