At Leinster House
INCREASING mental health awareness and delivering jobs for Limerick are the key issues for Deputy Tom Neville as he stood on the plinth outside Leinster House this Thursday before the opening session of the 32nd Dail.
“I want to continue the work and drive on the work in suicidology and mental health awareness. It’s a very important issue and something that needs to be continued.”
Deputy Neville said that he has informed himself more to be able to continue his father’s work on mental health to address it “politically and to drive it on in mainstream politics”.
“I want to continue the service that Dan has delivered over the last 26 years”, Deputy Neville said outside Leinster House, as he pledge to do the best he can for the people of county Limerick.
On the issue of jobs, the Fine Gael deputy from County Limerick said that he wanted to work hard on giving people a chance to gain employment and for his role as a public representative to try and attract more jobs to the county.
Speaking of his pride at being returned in the Limerick County constituency, Deputy Neville said that “it’s a very proud moment for me personally and I am very humbled by the support and the endorsement that I was given by the people of County Limerick.
“They have given that endorsement to Dan on a number of occasions and as I said on the night of the count, I was very grateful of the support they have given me.”
