Im James Heffernan, I am an Independent Senator, having left the Labour after they broke election promises when they introduced cuts in Child Welfare Payments and cuts to the Respite Care Grants. I am the only member of the Seanad from Limerick. I live in Kilfinane and studied History, Politics Social Studies and Sociology at UL but not all political education came from there. My beliefs and values were formed in my fathers van as we travelled the country servicing washing machines or behind the bar at home. During my time in college I got the opportunity to study at the University of Lapland in northern Finland and was very impressed with how their society, with a popuation similar to ours, operated with fairness and equality at its heart. I then studied in London where I qualified as a school teacher and worked in the inner city borough of Tower Hamlets in East London. I spent a number of months in South America, most of it in Bolivia where i witnessed huge social changes taking place. During my travels I met and spoke with many fellow Irish people who were travelling like me. We shared the same concerns about the direction our country was taking and how there seemed to be widespread corruption and cronyism with little investment in the people and the future. It was during my time in Australia that the 2007 General Election happened. I decided that that I wanted to return to Ireland and stand in the Limerick West constituency on behalf of the Labour Party. I gave the committment then that i would be in it for the long haul and I stood in the last local elections topping the poll in the Kilmallock Area. I have been involved in Irish Politics since then, contesting two further elections the General Election in 2011 and the Seanad Election the same year. If there are any issues that you feel I should raise at national level on your behalf, let me know. JamesRecently Added
