Vanessa Mulhall

Candidate for Lucan

My vision

My vision is of a better, fairer future for all the residents of Lucan. I am passionate about improving our environment and building a better community. I can bring a new, fresh voice to South Dublin County Council.

What I stand for

I want each member of the community at the centre of every decision taken by our local authority, and I want to work collectively to create a strong community that secures social justice for generations to come. I believe passionately in equality and green politics.

My priorities

    • Transport. We need to implement a strong policy on transport, including frequent buses and more rail. We need to combat traffic congestion, especially with the new Clonburris development. We need investment in pathways and facilities to make cycling a real option for more of us.
    • Housing. Well designed, properly planned housing and infrastructure can make life better for all of us. As many people commute from Lucan for work, college and school, housing is a big focus.
    • Community. With my background in community and youth work, I understand that providing appropriate space and investing in facilities for all members of the community is a cost-effective way of supporting vulnerable groups in society and improving community relations.
    • Environment. I want clean streets, clean parks and clean air, plus a focus on climate action and information for the people of Lucan.

My experience

Born and raised in Clondalkin, I was educated in Old Bawn Community School, Tallaght. I studied community and youth work at Maynooth University. I have been involved in volunteering from a young age with Foróige and the National Youth Council of Ireland. I am an advocate for the UN Sustainable Development Goals with Development perspectives. I have also volunteered with homeless services and I am currently chairperson of Bawnogue Youth and community centre. I live in Clondalkin with my family.
