Meet Sinéad

I’m Sinéad Halpin, the Social Democrats Local Election Candidate for Cork City North East.

I’m running for election because I love my area and want to make it a better place to live.

I’m from Farranree and I’ve been living in Mayfield with my family for ten years. I am a teacher with a background in science and renewable energy.

I believe that Cork City Council could be doing so much more, particularly in the areas of housing, dereliction and active travel.

As the city grows and matures, we need to ensure that there are community and green spaces, as well as accessible play facilities across the city.

I am passionate, hard-working and approachable and I would love the opportunity to represent you on Cork City Council.

Communities are built on connection and connections happen when people have the opportunity to speak. If elected, I will fight for more community green spaces and play spaces which are vital to building strong communities where neighbours can chat and children can play.

Sinéad’s Priorities

  • Prioritise the delivery of social and affordable homes.
  • Fight for better public transport and cycling facilities.
  • Prioritise bringing derelict buildings into public ownership and use.
  • Fight for high quality green spaces and play facilities in this area.
