Sincere thanks to everyone who voted for me on May 23rd! I am now officially representing the people of Dún Laoghaire at the council.

At my first election, I was elected with the 4th highest first preference vote of 21 candidates.

Recount at the town hall
Second recount of votes on 28th May at Dún Laoghaire Town Hall.

Sadly, Jane Dillon-Byrne lost her seat following two recounts. She was first elected a councillor in 1974.  I regret that we will not have her experience in the council chamber.

My incredible campaign manager, Eva Dowling, managed all aspects of the election campaign with great professionalism and I highly recommend her to anyone considering running for election or requiring large scale event management. Email me for her contact details.

Thanks to my wife Fiona and my children for encouraging me. Thanks to the more than 50 of my friends and family who volunteered to help me during the campaign.

 

Elected!
