“I have worked as a Solicitor in Arklow since 1999
and I have built up a great relationship with a huge number of long standing clients and friends both in Wicklow and Wexford where my former Practice provided the majority of our services. I am very proud to be from Arklow and to have such good relations and connections with both Wicklow and Wexford. Arklow is a great town and both the town itself and the surrounding areas are bursting with potential and opportunity. The area is full of wonderful enthusiastic people developing new business’, creating employment, offering up their free time with the organisation of childrens clubs, activities and sports clubs as well as those volunteers offering up their time with local groups such as the Tidy Towns and Cancer Support Groups. The town and the surrounding areas have great reputation in the arts as well, including renowned local drama groups such as Masquerade and of course the Avonmore Musical Society along with many other highly regarded musicians, bands and authors and all of these groups and committed people are constantly striving and trying to improve our town and our region. Of course the town and surrounding areas have great geographical advantage with excellent transport links to Dublin, the rest of Ireland and abroad, fantastic natural amenities including two beautiful beaches, a vibrant river, the longest stone bridge in Ireland and within minutes drive of Woodenbridge, the Vale of Avoca and the Wicklow Mountains. For my part I hope to be able, through my new practice, improve the legal services that I will continue to provide if and when required. I believe there is a great community spirit in Arklow and in the south east generally and a support between the various strands of businesses in the town. I believe it will require all of these various strands of businesses, community, sports, arts and politics to continue to work together and to support each others endeavours to make the town of Arklow and the surrounding areas one of the most successful towns in Ireland and a town and region that we are proud to call home and that others around the country will look to as somewhere they would like to emulate.”
