Bray People - - COMMENT -

SHAY CULLEN grew up in Round­wood and went to De La Salle sec­ondary school in Wick­low Town. Mar­ried to Rona with two chil­dren, Shay now lives in Newtownmountkennedy. Well known for his de­ter­mi­na­tion, Shay fol­lows through on ev­ery project. He has the en­ergy and drive to bring fresh enthusiasm to the Coun­cil – en­sur­ing that your wishes and needs are fully rep­re­sented.

Shay’s very much a com­mu­nity-fo­cused can­di­date, be­liev­ing that a strong com­mu­nity gives us a bet­ter, health­ier en­vi­ron­ment: bet­ter com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties al­low ev­ery­one feel proud of where they live – aware that their area is lis­tened to, their con­cerns are taken on board by the coun­cil - es­pe­cially on key de­ci­sions that di­rectly im­pact on our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

Shay will be work­ing hard to as­sist small indige­nous businesses, em­pha­sis­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for our youth, grow tourism and fur­ther de­velop Wick­low ar­ti­san food, whilst work­ing with com­mu­nity and vol­un­tary groups, clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions to en­sure that they are given the best help and sup­port that the coun­cil can pro­vide.

With a strong be­lief in the role of sport, Shay’s close as­so­ci­a­tion with the GAA has al­lowed him rep­re­sent our county at all lev­els. Shay’s also com­mit­ted to ru­ral is­sues in Wick­low - de­vel­oped from his work ex­pe­ri­ence ini­tially with the Wick­low Corn Com­pany in Rath­new and now with Glen Fu­els in Kil­macanogue. His farm­ing in­ter­ests also make him a val­ued con­trib­u­tor at Com­mit­tee Level within farm­ing and agri-busi­ness or­gan­i­sa­tions.
