A committed community activist, Aengus has never shied from speaking his mind and being active on local and national issues, including campaigns to abolish water charges and the local property tax, Dearg le Fearg, reinstating the Christmas Bonus and keeping Ballyfermot's De La Salle School open.

He is currently Sinn Féin’s spokesperson on Social Protection and Party Whip. Aengus was successful in getting all-party support for his report opposing the downgrading of social welfare payments into a single lowest common denominator payment.
