Local & European Elections: This June, we held our Local and European elections, and congratulations to all five Councillors elected in Lucan. I am delighted that Lucan is now represented by two dedicated Fine Gael Councillors: Vicki Casserly and Caroline Brady, both of whom are committed to being hardworking public representatives for the community. Additionally, Regina Doherty has been elected as MEP and will undoubtedly be a strong advocate for Dublin at the European level.

200,000 euro Funding for Lucan Village: Exciting news for Lucan as it receives 200,000 euro in funding under THRIVE, the Town Centre First Heritage Revival Scheme. This funding aims to allow local authorities to reimagine and bring town centres back to life through the renovation and reuse of publicly owned or derelict heritage buildings. I am excited to see the positive impact it will have on our community.

Thank you: I am deeply honoured and grateful for your support in the Local Election. I will formally take up position as your newly elected County Councillor at the SDCC AGM on Friday 21st June. I am eager to begin and will dedicate myself to working tirelessly for you and Lucan.

Posters: Thank you to my team who helped me take down the posters the day after the election. We also made sure to collect up all the associated cable ties. Upon counting the posters, we realized that several were removed. I would greatly appreciate it if you would inform me should you come across any discarded posters or if any reappear.

Water Services Strategic Plan Consultation: Irish Water are conducting a Public Consultation on the draft Water Services Strategic Plan 2050 (WSSP 2050). It is now open until 16 July 2024.

Thank You! It was a great honour to have topped the poll for the third time in a local election and to be elected with a surplus on the First Count for the very first time. Thank you to everyone who has shown faith in me once again. Congratulations to my colleagues on their re-election, outgoing Cllrs Casserly, O'Toole and Tuffy in Lucan LEA; to Cllrs Moynihan, Hayes and Johansson in Palmerstown-Fonthill; and to Cllrs Brady, Fennell and Moore winning a seat this time around in their respective LEAs. Commiserations to all candidates who put their names forward but didn't get elected and in particular outgoing Cllr Derren O'Bradaigh, who did not make it this time.

Just a short note to say I am honoured to be re-elected as a councillor for the Lucan Electoral Area. Thank you to everyone for your courtesy and kindness to me and my team of volunteers. Congratulations to the other candidates who were elected for our area. Commiserations to those that lost out, especially Derren O'Bradaigh who I pipped to the post for the final seat. Both he, and Ed O'Brien who did not run in this election, did great work for Lucan as councillors and will be missed on the Council.
