Elect Barry O'Mahony to Cork County Council

Donation protected
As an independent candidate, I don't have the financial backing of a large political organisation, but election campaigns do cost money. I would be very grateful for any donations to my campaign to cover the costs of getting my name out there, through newspaper advertising, flyers and posters.

Please note that there are strict rules for political donations in Ireland:

Donations can only be accepted from residents of the Ireland or Irish citizens living abroad. The maximum donation I can accept from 1 person is €1,000 and anonymous donations of over €100 are not allowed (for larger donations, you may opt to have your name hidden on this website, but your name will be shared with me). I may have to contact you after your donation to confirm the details.

By donating, you confirm that you are an Irish resident or an Irish citizen living overseas.

Thank you!

- Barry O'Mahony is a graphic designer and martial arts instructor, originally from the village of Shannonvale, Clonakilty, and now living in Kilruane, Rosscarbery, with his wife and daughter. -

“As a candidate for the 2024 Local Elections, I want communities in West Cork to have their voices heard by Cork County Council.

Through my 18 years working as a taekwondo coach, and many years of volunteer work with a number of local community groups, I have had the privilege of travelling throughout West Cork, running multiple martial arts clubs and self defence classes, and working with numerous schools, special needs organisations and women’s groups throughout the region. This experience has brought me into contact with thousands of individuals and families, each unique, and each experiencing their own ups and downs.

Over this time, I have become well-acquainted with the difficulties faced by these communities and the wide variety of needs and issues which exist in West Cork – a fact often ignored by government and the one-size-fits-all policies they present.

I believe in the value of real Local Democracy, and I want to fight for a County Council that responds to its community, rather than simply rubber-stamping the policies of central government.

I can't wait to get started, speaking up for the people of West Cork."
