I am a Fine Gael TD for Cork East which spans from Buttevant to Youghal. I live in Killavullen, Mallow Co. Cork. I am married to Dr. Kathy Quane (lecturer at the College of Medicine and Health, University College Cork) and we have three young children. I am a Biochemist by profession. I established a grain drying and warehousing business in 1995 “TBWAREHOUSING” and now have 7 full time and 3 part time staff.I like most others in this country am at the cold face of the financial meltdown which has destroyed our country. I really feel that if all we can offer our children is a life abroad against their will then we have failed as a nation to protect our own.I was elected a TD on the 26th of February 2011, taking the third seat having reached the quota. A special thank you to all you who came out to vote for me. I hope I can use my experience in business start up, job creation, third level education, farming and of course rearing a young family in the Ireland of today to be an effective TD and represent your views in Dáil Eireann for the coming term. There is no substitute for experience and I hope to influence Fine Gael policy formation in the future especially in the areas which I understand and feel passionate about.Thank You for taking the time to look around my website. Please do not hesitate to contact my office if I can be off assistance to you.
