He was a member of Seanad Éireann from 1997 to 2011.[1] A former psychiatric nurse, he was first elected to the Seanad in 1997 by the Administrative Panel, on his third attempt.[2] He was an unsuccessful candidate for Dáil Éireann at the 1997 general election for the Westmeath constituency.[2] He served on Westmeath County Council and Mullingar Town Council from 1979–2004.
