Thank you for visiting my website.

Since I was elected in 2014, I’ve worked to address all local queries that individuals or resident associations have brought to me, while also progressing long-term projects like the Royal Canal Greenway, re-establishing Blanchardstown Tidy Towns and supporting the development of new schools.  I believe transparency is really important, so I keep residents updated with regular newsletters and have held public meetings on key local issues. I have worked on transport and public safety issues through my membership of the Transportation Committee and the Joint Policing Committee. I’ve worked closely with the Green Party TDs in the Dáil to put pressure on Government Ministers to deliver education and public transport projects in Dublin 15.

Thank you for voting me back into the Council so that I can continue this work and develop new projects to improve quality of life across Dublin 15.

Cllr. Roderic O’Gorman
