Meet Aishling

I’m Aishling Silke, the Social Democrats Local Election Candidate for Artane Whitehall.

I live in Artane Beaumont and work in Dublin City University as a lecturer in Early Childhood Education, specialising in advocacy, leadership and social studies.

I have spent over 15 years advocating for high quality, affordable and accessible childcare along with fair pay and conditions for those who work directly with the children in the settings. I campaign strongly to have Care, and Carers working in the community valued by the government. I work on ensuring the voice of people in the community is heard at local and national government levels.

I am a person who gets the job done with energy, passion and enthusiasm. I look forward to working with you and hope you will trust me to represent you and the issues that matter to you in local government.

I believe every community should have access to local services including, housing, childcare, home care, community health care, community spaces and education. I actively campaign to highlight how provision of these services creates thriving communities.

Aishling’s Priorities

  • Improving services for those who require care and for those who provide it.
  • Promoting wider consultation with community groups on matter that are important and impact them.
  • Creating more safe recreational areas and attractive shared spaces to bring communities together.
  • Improving pedestrian infrastructure through maintenance of paths, tree management and lighting.
  • Supporting a stronger sense of identity and belonging within communities by strengthening and growing local community groups.
