To create a fair society we have to get the basics right. We must ensure that we all have access to secure, affordable housing, healthcare when they need it, safe communities, decent work and a clean environment. I want to work on practical solutions that deliver what our community needs.
I was first elected to Dublin City Council in 2004 and I successfully introduced the Dublin Bikes Scheme during my term. I was re-elected in 2009 and 2014 and served as Lord Mayor in 2011/2012. During my term on DCC I established the Cycling Committee and cycling tripled in the city.
