Kilmovee native, Tommy Horan has been selected as a candidate by Aontú to run in the Swinford Local Electoral Area this May.
Aontú was founded by former Sinn Fein TD Peadar Toibin TD.
Tommy Horan is a Family Support and Community Development Worker at Kilmovee Family Resource Centre and is also self employed running his own business.
He has an extensive track record in community development and has always been actively involved, at local, county and national levels.
Tommy has been the one of the driving forces behind the now well-known and busy social enterprise of Kilmovee Community Centre which incorporates social housing, all weather pitch, laundry, health centre, meeting rooms, Meals on Wheels and Heritage Centre.
He serves on the Board of Mayo North East Leader which is responsible for Leader Funding (Rural Development Programme) in North and East Mayo. He has huge concerns that the current programmes funding has been slashed which is another hit at Rural Mayo.
