I’m Michael, the Green Party councillor for Dublin’s South West Inner City. I’ve been on the Council since May 2019, but have been active in the Greens since 2006.
I’m 33, living in Inchicore. I grew up in Dublin, but have also lived in Hanoi, Brussels and London.
I’m a full time councillor, having recently finished up as Head of Communications with the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation. Previously, I’ve worked for:
- The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, on the economy and environment press desk
- Ciarán Cuffe, Minister for Sustainable Transport and Planning
- Friends of the Earth, campaigning for a clean, cheap, renewable energy system
- The UK’s Trades Union Congress (TUC), fighting for a better deal for low-paid workers.
More info is on my LinkedIn page.
For reasons that aren’t entirely clear, I also run a very nerdy archive of Irish Election Manifestos.
For transparency, here’s a breakdown of my income, memberships, assets etc.
