Séafra Ó Faoláin

Councillor for Blackrock

My priorities

    • Climate Action The Green Party has led the way on climate action
      for decades. Locally, we can be environmental leaders by implementing our own economically proofed policies, such as the incentivisation
      of deep retrofitting, and of electric vehicle
    • Local Infrastructure. We must protect our coastline and water quality from pollutant spillages – the seaside should be a family-friendly amenity for us all. The smart design of cycling infrastructure is needed to make
      cycling a safe and attractive mode of transport.
    • Mental Health. I want a fundamental shift in how we treat mental health. Children and young people in particular face many evolving challenges. A holistic approach is needed, prioritising early intervention, while improving funding across Dún
