Richard – Fighting to defend our community and environment
For many years Richard and People Before Profit have had a record second to none of fighting for local services and amenities. Richard takes the average industrial wage & uses the balance of his salary & Dáil allowances to support campaigns and run the only TD advice clinic in our constituency.
Richard’s Local Priorities
Build public & affordable housing urgently at Shanganagh, Cherrywood & other public sites.
Reduce parking charges, rates for small business & bring vacant units back into use.
Develop our Harbour in the interests of the public with a municipal water-sports centre.
Fund & provide facilities for local sports & community organisations.
Oppose all cuts to public transport and deliver more buses on local routes.
Return bin collection to public ownership and ensure provision of more recycling facilities and street bins.
Develop urban renewal plans for Monkstown Farm, Loughlinstown, Ballybrack and Sallynoggin.
Provide adequate & affordable childcare places in our area.
Protect & upgrade local hospital services at St. Michael’s & Loughlinstown.
Secure more funding for St. Joseph’s Dementia Care centre in Shankill.
Provide a swimming pool at the Baths site.
Invest in coastal defences.
No inappropriate development at Bulloch Harbour or along the seafront
