Catherine has worked for Trinity College Dublin and Newstalk FM and has extensive professional experience in both the higher education access and broadcast media sectors. Having experienced first-hand how difficult family life is made by the compound effect of Ireland’s high housing costs, prohibitive childcare fees and soaring living expenses, Catherine is determined to work towards more affordable living for Irish people.

Catherine was an active member of the Dublin Bay North Together for Yes campaign involved in strategy, fundraising and canvassing. She remains active with the Dublin Bay North Choice and Equality Network. She is also on the committee campaigning for a new Educate Together school for Killester, Raheny and Clontarf. Catherine believes community and residents associations are a vital part of our social infrastructure and is secretary of her local community association – Donnycarney West Community Association.

Catherine is a mother of two young children living in Donnycarney. She grew up in Cootehill, Co Cavan and moved to Dublin at 17. Catherine holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in English Literature and Philosophy from Trinity College Dublin. Her other qualifications include a CPD certificate in higher education access from UCD and a diploma in counselling from DBS.

Catherine is particularly interested in solutions to the housing crisis, childcare quality and affordability, reproductive and sexual health policy and, as a result of her own experience of chronic illness, disability and mental health policy. If elected to Dublin City Council she promises to reflect and amplify the concerns of local people with an emphasis on evidence based solution focussed approaches.

Good Luck today xx

Congratulations We have a new councilor in the family.


I’m asking for your number 1 vote for Dublin City Council on Friday 24th May.
My priorities on the council will be
Housing - building public housing on public land, acting to reduce rents
Climate action - cutting carbon emissions, increasing biodiversity and reducing plastic use
Public transport and cycle infrastructure- encouraging people to leave the car behind by delivering top quality public transport networks and safe segregated cycle lanes
