About Gino

I was first elected in the 2009 local elections. Having been a councillor for seven years I was elected as a TD in the 2016 general election. I worked as a care worker until 2016. Our family moved to Clondalkin in 1979 where I still live. Representing the people of Dublin Mid-West has been an enormous privilege. I want to continue the work and highlight the issues that I feel have made a difference in the past four years. Hopefully with your support I can continue making that difference.
