Welcome

in the 2023 Council election I was re-elected as part of a strong 5-person team of Alliance Councillors with MLA Patrick Brown acting as my election agent. Patrick and I worked together to deliver my local government manifesto   Restore Downpatrick as our Unchallenged County Town. 

Five Councillors and an MLA - great progress!
Five Councillors and an MLA – great progress!

Myself and my 5 colleagues can be contacted though our MLA’s offices at Market Lane in the centre of Downpatrick where we lead the fight-back against the Newry-based parties to  Restore Downpatrick as our Unchallenged County Town.

We also have an office in Warrenpoint in the aptly-named Meeting Street.

These links will take you to my Facebook page and profile where you will see our team continuing to work day and daily for the people of Downpatrick and the Lecale Coast, North to Rowallane and Strangford Lough and South to the Mournes and Carlingford Lough.

 The campaigns you see on this website mostly go back before Facebook to  the 2007 to 2011 Council term and again from 2011 up to 2012. Since March 2019 I have been testing software that sends my current Facebook posts to this site – see below – It’s limited to the last dozen or so posts and I have been working on how to keep a larger number of these posts on the website.

Was at Mullugh Quay on a beautiful morning to launch your canoe here!

Great to be out with Michelle Guy Strangford and Nick Mathison MLA today to tour the new boundaries of the new Strangford constituency.

It will include the Quoile area, Saul and Raholp, Strangford village, Kilclief, Ballyhornan, Chapeltown, Ballyalton and around Downpatrick, where hopefully the bypass with grace of god will connect the hospital to Belfast Road!

Ardglass and Killough will remain in South Down where my colleague Andrew McMurray Alliance Party is the MLA. Confusing to have the council area split between two Westminster constituencies!

ATTEMPTED MURDER IN DOWNPATRICK
I was meeting with residents this evening after the attack earlier today resulted in 3 people from 2 houses being injured in what the PSNI have described to me as attempted murder and were looking for a known suspect. While I was there the alleged perpetrator arrived back in a red car and I called the police.
The PSNI are staying there for the night to ease residents fears and are also out looking for the person concerned

CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN WHY COUNCIL NEEDS A GIANT NEW HQ IN NEWRY?

A small modern office for Newry based staff would be fine. But a brand new giant HQ in Newry is madness.

The overwhelming calls of Newry residents, businesses, and local parish, as well as other gov't agencies must be listened to - no to an unnecessarily large second HQ in Newry.

Thanks to Down Recorder for covering this story 👇
