Patrick Costello

Councillor for Kimmage Rathmines

My vision for Dublin Bay South

I want Dublin to be a more community focused and sustainable city; a vibrant city built for people.

What I stand for

I stand for investing in communities – working to ensure that they are well planned, sustainable and have space for all.

My priorities

    • Dublin needs quality public housing – We need to build more homes, for all ages and incomes. Yet there is very little building happening, either public or private. This needs to change.
    • Dublin needs sustainable transport – we need to support cycling, walking and public transport. This will not only help us face the challenge of climate change but also make the city cleaner and accessible.
    • Dublin needs to remain a creative city – we need to ensure there is space for culture and creativity at all levels, supporting markets, artists studios, community groups and social enterprise.
    • Dublin needs to face up to climate change – we need to do what we can to reduce our carbon emissions, but also get ready for rising sea levels.

My experience

I am a child protection social worker who previously worked in homeless and addiction services. I am a local scout leader and a volunteer board member of a youth project in Crumlin. I currently sit on the Housing Committee and the Planning Committee of Dublin City Council.
