I worked as advisor to Labour Party Leinster MEP, Nessa Childers. Under the Lisbon Treaty, the European Parliament has assumed a much bigger role in decision making.
This work enhanced my role as a public representative, giving me a broader international insight into the major issues of our time.
The European Parliament is the world’s largest democratically elected Chamber, giving voice to the concerns and hopes of almost 500 million citizens.
We devoted much of our work to a range of specific areas such as;
- Alzheimers disease and dementia
- Improving Ireland & the EUs environmental standards
- Climate change
- Pro-health food labelling
- Training opportunities for redundant workers
