Dave Quinn has lived in Dun Laoghaire Monkstown for over 20 years, raising a family of four children. Dave is an engineering graduate from Trinity College and he started a computer software company in 1980 and he employs people locally.
Along with other local parents, he helped start The Red Door in 2001, a special school for children with autism. Dave is a Board member of Inclusion Ireland, the national organisation representing people with intellectual disabilities. Dave is also an active member of Basic Income Ireland advocating for basic income as a means to modernise our tax and social welfare systems for the benefit of all. He also sings in the local choir – badly!
Dave was drawn to the Social Democrats because of their values and their ambitions of equality, respect and fairness – all achieved through a prosperous economy that protects and nurtures the environment. Community well-being and inclusion are Dave’s priority. Dave believes in the 4 pillars to the State supporting respect and well-being for all citizens – education, health services, housing and income.
Dave joined the SocDems 3 years ago and is currently the Dun Laoghaire branch’s representative on the Social Democrats’ Council.
