I am Martin Heydon, Fine Gael TD for Kildare South since 2011 and current Minister of State in the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine with Special Responsibility for Research and Development, Farm Safety, and New Market Development.
Previously serving as chairman of the Fine Gael Parliamentary Party, I have been continually committed to fighting at the highest level of Government for investment and support to be directed toward Kildare South.
I am honest, hard-working and approachable.
Delivering for Kildare South
I have fought for and delivered investment for Kildare South & Laois – funding for Kildare’s Blueway and St Conleths Park, better roads, more local bus routes, new family resource centres, primary care centres and sports capital grants.
I want to continue my work to deliver more school places and gardai, increased rail capacity, more houses, planned extensions at Naas Hospital and more climate action.
As a husband and father of 3 young boys, I want the best education and childcare facilities and a bright future for all our children and their parents.
