Serving you in Fingal County Council
As a social care worker, who has worked with the youth, and

understanding to the specific needs of families across our community. It was the poor services and lack of solid representation that has pushed Gerard into politics.

“Why should you elect me?” asks Sheehan.
Youth & Special Needs
At the moment in the Dublin 15 area, there are insufficient specialised school places for children with special needs. This includes our high functioning and gifted children.
Leaving families without any school places for their children, and in some cases having to get up very early and commute out of Dublin 15 to anywhere that will take their child. Along with my team, I am committed to increasing representation on this very important issue. We must address this without delay. By electing me, you will give me the means I need to advance this cause.
It is my belief a home should be a constitutional right for every citizen. Given our links to An Gorta Mór (the Great Famine) in Ireland, and more recently the disgusting homelessness crisis relentlessly fuelled by unbridled greed I believe no Irish citizen should be left without a safe, warm and secure dwelling they can call home.
Crime & Public Safety
It is vital community policing is maintained and supported by our families and our clubs and schools across our community. Seeking more Gardaí and more funding for community initiatives that take young people off our streets will be a key priority when I am elected.
