Local Election Candidate for Donaghmede-Raheny
Paddy is a lawyer and serves as a policy officer at the human rights organisation Education Equality.
In 2015, Paddy’s campaign to end the baptism barrier brought national and international attention to the issue and his petition to end religious prioritisation in school enrolment gathered 20,000 signatures. In 2018 the Education (Admission to Schools) Act outlawed such practices in the vast majority of primary schools.
Alongside his continuing advocacy in education Paddy will focus on the issues of public transport and housing as local representative in the Donaghmede -Raheny area.
Paddy attended St. Paul’s College in Raheny and went on to qualify as a barrister from the King’s Inns. He practised law at the bar for several years before going on to work for NGOs including Educate Together and the homelessness charity Extern.
Paddy lives with his wife and son in Raheny. He has lived in the Dublin Bay North constituency for his entire life.
