Oliver Moran
Green
Party 7


Incumbent : No

Main message to voters:

I'm best known as a national campaigner for political reform. However, by day, I work as a software engineering with Laya. I've more than 10 years experience in e-learning, community education, R&D and social enterprises. I live in Cork with my wife, Aoife, and our three year old son.

Election history:

I stood in the 2014 local elections in Cork and attracted one third of a quota, which is very reasonable for a first time out. In 2010, I founded the national campaign group, Second Republic (www.2nd-republic.ie). Since 2009, I've helped the Cork Greens rediscover their activist roots in Cork.

Priorities:

  1. THE RIGHT TO WATER: It may surprise many but the Green Party supports publicly-funded water, with metered charges only for those who waste water.
  2. THE RIGHT TO A HOME: We should hold a referendum guaranteeing the right to suitable housing for everyone: families, young people, and the homeless.
  3. CITIZEN-INITIATED REFERENDUMS: These would enable ordinary citizen to get together and challenge poor legislation or bring forward new ideas.
