Meet Justin

Justin is the Social Democrats councillor for Rathfarnham-Templeogue-Greenhills on South Dublin County Council having recently replaced the outstanding Carly Bailey.

Justin lives in Rathfarnham with his young family and recognises the immense privilege it is to serve and represent his area. A former independent county councillor, having represented the Swords Ward from 2014 and 2019, Justin currently works for SOLAS the Further Education and Training Authority where his role is focused on supporting learner pathways in FET, skills and inclusion. He previously worked for the Higher Education Authority and the Irish Research Council.

He is a former Chairperson of Blackrock Institute of Further Education and holds a PhD in Politics from UCD.

Justin is focused on improving the communities across Rathfarnham, Templeogue & Greenhills and ensuring that there is proper investment in the parks, playgrounds, road and paths and facilities for young and old alike.

He recognises one of the greatest challenges facing us is the housing crisis and is committed to supporting and enabling the provision of affordable housing and sustainable housing in his area.

My core aim is improving my area and delivering on issues that matter to people. I believe strongly in local government and that it is a force for positive change. However it can only be that change by ensuring that we create sustainable communities where the needs of people and families are put first.

Justin’s Priorities

  • Investment in public services and amenities, including parks, community centres and play areas.
  • Making our estates and communities cleaner and well-kept by tackling litter, graffiti and anti-social behaviour.
  • Ensuring there is greater transparency and communication with residents in relation to how the Council spend our money.
  • Working with Garda√≠ and Community Leaders to ensure our streets, parks and estates are safer.
  • An inclusive, fair and just society with affordable housing as a priority.
