The former Millstreet Community School student is currently reading Law and History at Dublin City University. He has been previously involved in many campaigns for the party at various levels in both YFG and the senior party.

His move to national politics began at the Young Fine Gael National Conference which took place for the first time ever online and was attended by almost 500 young people across Ireland.

Gary has spent the last 18 months building up the DCU Young Fine Gael Branch, which was recipient of YFG Dublin Branch of the Year 2020 and has won awards from the University’s Clubs and Societies. The Branch has also seen its numbers significantly rise and he successfully oversaw the planning of a trip to Brussels to enhance YFG’s relations with its sister party in the Youth European People’s Party.

Gary (20) said he hopes to make an impact on the national youth political stage after being given such a mandate to serve and make a difference.  “As Dublin Regional Organiser, I am responsible for the day-to-day management of the organisation in the Region and I will have a massive opportunity to make YFG’s presence in the Capital ever stronger. I am bursting with ambition on making sure young people feel Young Fine Gael best represents their interests and that it is an organisation in which they are then able to call their political home”.

Gary’s election involved a series of Nomination Evenings and National Hustings, to enable Members of YFG to scrutinise his candidacy for the position. This then was followed by a postal ballot where Members elected a Ten-Member National Executive.
