Claire Byrne

Candidate for Dublin Bay South

Vote Claire Byrne for Dublin Bay South

As a local Councillor for the last seven years, I understand the wide range of issues that are important to the people of Dublin Bay South.

I believe that Dublin should be a great city to grow up in, and to grow old in. Not just a place to visit, but a city you can afford to live in and never want to leave. If we put climate, housing and culture at the heart of our policy, we can make Dublin a city for living. It’s time to bring that message to Dáil Éireann.

Voting for me will guarantee an experienced, committed, and female Green voice in Government who can deliver for Dublin Bay South.

    to tackle homelessness, build homes and create vibrant communities.
    to continue to create a clean, vibrant, green and climate ready city.
    to ensure we support and protect our creativity and restore our night time culture.
    to create a safe, calm, cycling, and child – friendly city.
    to provide more healthy spaces to rest, relax and reflect.
    for a democratic, equal, inclusive City.
