Hi, my name is Ger Moloney and I have been put forward for election on behalf of The Glanmire Community Association Committee. I currently work full-time as a public servant and have a great interest in the community and making it a safer environment for my 3 teens and others to grow up in and live in.
I am a community First Responder and on the Safe Committee (A Suicide Awareness Group) also, so have a deep commitment to my community and what’s happening in the area.
I run a large informative Facebook Group with 6800 local members called Mums of Glanmire where I do my utmost to make sure mums are informed re all local issues in a positive way.
