Cllr. Joe Sheridan
I am Joe Sheridan from Milltown and a prospective candidate in the 2020 elections.
I am a family man, married to Sinead from Dunmore, with a young family of three. I am the middle son of J.J. Sheridan, Milltown and Mary Forde, Liskeavy, in a family of seven. I have lived and worked my entire life in North Galway and my background is in Agricultural Science with a Masters in Food Science and Engineering. I have a country pub business and run a Brewing and Distilling Consultancy.
I am an avid follower of all sports, particularly GAA football. I am a community man with a deep work and delivery ethic. I believe in positive action and the provision of services to country areas and small towns alike. I am a founder and continuing sponsor of the Rural Social Scheme for North Galway servicing Clonberne, Cortoon, Dunmore and Milltown. I am the Public Relations Officer representing over 300 businesses in Co. Galway and a founding member of our local drama group. I have held local community positions such as Chair of the Community Council, Trader’s Association, Historical Society as well as numerous amenity and sporting body committee posts.
I am an advocate for Galway 2020, Credit Union, family farm producers, and facility uppgrades for Tuam Stadium, Maroon Ways, plus other outdoor recreational amenities. I am a facilitator sponsor for local worthy causes and charities with a particular focus for 2020 on Sensory Children and Autism.
Like all who live and work in rural Ireland and small towns, my livelihood in recent years has changed. Small rural businesses like pubs, shops and farms can no longer fully sustain families. Often supplementary incomes are required to maintain a decent quality of life.
Our neighbours and communities are suffering and the future of our children isn’t as clear as it may have been in the past.
Over the past fourteen months I conducted a ‘behaviours and attitudes’ survey throughout North County Galway. There were over 1,100 responses and from this I feel that I have a good understanding of concerns and what people want in a prospective county councillor.
My five year goals include and enhancement and standardisation of NOM monies nationally. This is to empower Councillors to get valuable work done in their local areas. Others include:
