Conor grew up in County Donegal, Ireland, and studied History, Sociology and Political Science at NUI Galway. In 2015 he completed his MA in European Public Policy from Maastricht University in the Netherlands. He has also worked with political parties and campaigns on both sides of the Atlantic, and was a regular contributer to the student political journal ‘Affairs Today’.
Conor joined Grassroots because he is passionate about the Civil Rights campaigns currently dominating our political discourse, in particular the continued fight for LGBTQ equality and dismantling the Republican’s draconian voter ID laws.
Conor will spend his Spring recruiting other passionate progressives to help us win these battles at a state and federal level.
