Our team

Pat Mellon – National Coordinator 

“We hear time and time again how wealthy a country we are, yet many of our members have or are at risk of being left behind. The fight for a Commissioner for Ageing and Older People is ongoing along with the Pension Promise and real Home Care Initiatives to keep our citizens who built this country living positive lives in their community. All your lives you have represented those who needed it most. Now is the time to bring your knowledge, experience, connections and fight to the table.

Let us march together for a better future.”

Grace joined the Irish Senior Citizens Parliament in January 2019, following a number of years as a full-time home-based parent.  Her previous background and expertise is in  Office administration and coordination which supports her work with the ISCP.

“What I like about the role is how varied and wide ranging the work is. I can go from Financial Accounting work with the CEO to membership support. I particularly enjoy the membership element of the work and hearing the experiences and issues our members raise.”
