Rathdown Greens
Quote marks

I want a community with flourishing biodiversity, top quality public services for all, welcomes well-planned housing and other infrastructure in which every person has the option to live sustainably and securely.

My priorities

A just transition and a protection of our valuable natural heritage.

Social inclusion and protection of the rights of vulnerable groups, in particular migrants and younger people.

Decent and affordable housing for all.

A clean, safe and liveable Dublin where people of all ages and abilities can safely access services and amenities in their local area without the need to drive long distances.


I have been a councillor for Glencullen-Sandyford on Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council since 2020. I have been Chairperson of the Transportation & Marine Strategic Policy Committee, a voluntary board member on DLR Leisure and a member of the Corporate Policy Group which sets budget priorities for the council. Since being a councillor, I have focussed on planning issues, climate action, safer streets, biodiversity and community facilities for our area. I have a particular interest in advocating for better public transport, starting a petition calling on the NTA for a Dublin Mountain bus, helping people manage the Bus Connects transition and pushing for more bus shelters for our area.

I am on the Board of Management of my local school, Ballinteer Educate Together National School. Before becoming a councillor, I have experience in the international NGO sector, the tech industry and in grassroots campaigning for safer streets.
